Possible problem with GT light clusters
Just got back from collecting my car from the dealers. I have a new body computer, rear near side light cluster and reverse lamp on back order from the factory.
I took the car in as I was experiencing an intermittent fault on the alarm which at first seemed to occur when there was condensation in the rear lights, and subsequently more frequently, suggesting the water has done its work on the electrics
The problem will be solved by the new parts, but I'm a bit worried that theres a design or material flaw in the light clusters as the seals have failed causing moisture to get in.
1 could just be bad luck, but this will now be the third new rear light in less than a year (the rear fog light was full of water and swapped when I bought the car) so 3 seal failures seems to suggest its a poor component.
Something you might want to keep an eye on, I'd guess the computer would be expensive out of warranty
