What have you done to your 718 today?

Recommended Posts

Noted lots of these type of threads, but none for the 718.

Ordered new headlights for mine today to be replaced partly under goodwill following the crazing. Just in time for the warranty to expire.

All sorted, the fans were stuck, a common fault apparently?

So they carried that fault over from the 981?

I noticed on a clear plastic measuring jug that it crazes when hot water is put in it. I was wondering whether the headlight crazing could be caused by washing the lights with hot water when the ambient temperature is low?

I think its to do with the heat that the bulbs generate?

That's a good theory.  Both scenarios involve temperature differential.

We have 4 cars in the household, 3 cars led lights no cracking , 1 car halogen and cracking. I have also read somewhere about it too?
