Front light lens

Post by Burtjack » Sun Jul 21, 2019 7:33 pm

Both of the plastic front light len's covers have burn/discolouration marks, both in exactly the same places.
Has anyone else had this problem?

Nothing for me. Would be useful to know what year your car is, if you have halogen or LED lights too. You should be in warranty so take it up with Audi.

Can you show us a photo?

Only now have i been able to see your photos.

When you turn the lights off or in day time, do you have the marks? it is normal to have marks as the light passes when turned on. My LED lights have them, but they are clear and as new when off. It is normal and EVERY single car has this. The problem is only a problem if the lenses are not clear when lights are off

I had some condensation on mine at one time, is it definitely a permanent burn mark?

Is there any PPF (paint protection film) on the headlight that could be burnt? From the pictures it definitely looks like something is burnt rather than condensation.

Audi UK prompted dealer and defective lights replaced f.o.c. Still no idea why they burnt, no ppf film.
