New Cars with cracks in the Headlight cowls...

Description
The attached photos were taken of the headlight cowls on a brand new 2013 +4 after the car was parked in the sun for an hour.

Both headlight cowls developed a split in the same place along the join to the body big enough to slide a credit card into. When we examined the car a few day later in the cool of the evening the crack had substantially closed. Morgan claim it is to do with heat and humidity sounds reasonable.

There have been 3 new Morgans (+4, and Roadster) in Australia so far with the same problem.

No doubt heat is a major contributor but if this can happen on a mild autumn morning in Sydney, I hate to think what may happen when we get some real heat.

As the northern hemisphere moves into summer (hopefully soon) this may be a real watch point for all owners of new Morgan cars.

Has anyone had any experience with this?

Graeme, How is the new +4 going? I trust you don't have issues with the cowls!

Just waxing my car ready for a weekend car show and guess what? A crack around the headlamp nacelle on nearside wing.

Taking it to the dealer tomorrow - happy days.

Just realised this post has had over 60,000 views...

Could that be right?
