I'm some problems too about the CAUSATIVE HAVE because it's very different from my language.
I've studied that it's used when someone or something does a service for you or other people, for example:-
tomorrow morning I'm having my checked car;
the next week she' s having her cut hair (cut like infinitive);
yesterday he had his + INFINITIVE + SERVICE
it should be like that!

I think it's more usual to say, "Tomorrow morning, I'm having my car checked."
