The rear view mirror in my 98 HSE 4.6 went bad. The LCD has leaked. I remember another member had this problem on another thread and he said he had it replaced for free by the manufactorer. Can anybody provide info about this.
I had an interview at Magna Donelly a couple of months ago (when i still had my P38 and not the L322 I have now). The cynic in me decided it might be a better idea to take the wifes VW Jetta to the interview instead.
Don't think they are replacing for free any more.
Also, it looks like Jaguar cars are/were affected too: http://www.jaguarforums.com/forum/showthread.php?t=17719
The pic on this page, looks identical to the one that leaked all over my dash, which caused extensive damage to my dash. The list of damaged items includes:
- the central plastic (containing the EAS/light switch buttons);
- gear lever electronc unit;
- gear lever surround (inc the ash tray);
- gear lever plastic;
- windows/sunroof switch pack;
- drivers seat leather;
- drivers seat plastic surround.
And to make matters even more infuriating, it damaged the display on the new Sony headunit I'd fitted.
I still have the damaged mirror in place (~9 months after it happened), but from that link above, it looks like they are US$75 to get a new unit.....
