Has anyone ever experienced the following damage to a rear light lens on an Audi?
There is not a scratch on the car. The surface of the lens where the damage is, feels perfectly smooth. As though the damage has occurred from the inside.
I am thinking flexing of body shell, going over potholes, may have caused the lens to fracture.

Not a shopping trolley. We have been doing click & collect during the lockdown.
Any ideas?

Hi,

I would say someone or something has hit the lens, as I doubt this was caused by potholes or the body flexing.

To me it looks like there has been some form of impact.
The body would have to flex badly for a light lens to crack and if so I would have thought it would crack at one of it's fixings.
However it happened luckily it has not damaged the paintwork.

Hi,

I noticed on the VW Polo forum that a VW Polo owner reported the rear lenses cracking when there was no obvious signs of damage from outside forces, so may be worth having a look on the forum or contacting the owners to get more information. Could be a fault with the manufacturing process thta will affect VAG cars. His were replaced under warranty.
