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?
