"seems like if there was a fire near your smart, you'd have known about it. And it would have done damage to not just the plastic light lenses, but to the rear gate panel and bumper valance. I say write to Smart, send them some hi res photos."
our tail lights on our 2006 4/2 melted in and at first Mercedes declined to fix them at their cost. So i complained a whole lot and they have reversed their decision and now will be replacing them at their cost. So if they say no, just keep trying. Everyone should check their tail lights, both our top lenses have melted in and could cause a problem from the heat of the bulbs. So thanks Mercedes
"We were just informed by Mercedes that our service agent decided that our lights are melted from the outside...how does a light melt when the car is covered and has no other marks from a fire (which she said we had parked near) if a person parked…"
"the only thing I can think of is the exhaust heat is seeping up the sides and coming out around that lens. that could cause the distortion and not affect much else as each plastic has a different melting point temperature."
"we went from home (McLeese Lake BC- in the cariboo) to Kamloops BC (300 Miles) then to Whitecourt Alberta and back. Total mileage was 2100 kilometers and cost $97. Then went to Bella Coola BC and back home-mileage 1000kms cost $48 we get around 55…"
our 2006 smart 4/2 has a problem with the tail lights- they are melted inwards, not from the sun or any type of heat being applied. Has anyone else haad this problem, our service rep. took off the lens and stated that the lens was not damaged on the inside.
