Hi Everyone,

This place is to post any technical defect found on your Accent which happens many many times after fixing it.

I just got a call from my friend Luke (got to know him at SC Jln 222). PLEASE CHECK YOU HEADLAMP!!!

Our Headlamps Chrome plating is having bubles/circle/peeling off!!!
My poor poor car kena already.

To find the defect, look downwards from the top. It is normally located at the top triangular part which is between the signal light and headlamp!! You have to look really closely and it must be clean. Look out for something circular/or peeling off around that area. Better to see it under a hot sunny day.

Fast Fast Check It!!!







I have the same problem with my headlamps. My Accent is only 7 months old and the bubbles have formed on both headlamps.

Marky, did you managed to get the SC to replace the lights?

And the central locking mechanism is truly the worst! It is noisy and is faulty again for the second time in 3 months, the first time it cannot unlock the doors then got it fixed by SC during after CNY. Today morning, the same problem happened again , now tonight even worse, the all doors cannot lock!

I'm going to Jln Ipoh SC somewhere in this month to get it changed. It just got worse! More cracks. Just have to keep changing your lamps until you get a good one.

For the central lock, demand them to change a new unit cause it broke down many times and you're entitle to demand for it.

Dear all member,
PLEASE CHECK YOU HEADLAMP!!!
Our Headlamps Chrome plating is having bubles/circle/peeling off!!!
marky have mentioned about this issue (on TECHNICAL FLAW/MANUFECTURING DEFECT!!!, but I can not move the message here) last time but we all did not concern about it.......
when I went to Jln Ipoh SC just now, one of the member here (registered but never post the message) pointed out this issue and shown the headlamps' Chrome plating which is having bubles/circle/peeling off for my car to me Crying or Very sad
I think most of us did not notice it so PLEASE CHECK YOU HEADLAMP NOW!!!
According to him, the new version/batch of the Headlamps are better quality so I will go to Jln Ipoh to claim for it tommorrow Evil or Very Mad
If u did not notice the bubles/circle/peeling off with ur Headlamps Chrome plating, u shall ask the SC guy to check for u when u are free or sending ur car for service

Checked already, no bubble, but looking from the pic, it's doesn't look like bubble to me, but more like mold marks of the screw driver, but even it is it sure looks like substandard QC to me. See KB is going back to it's Honda days.

Yes, my one also look more like mold marks of the screw driver, but the guy who told me about this, has mentioned that after the mold marks/bubles/circle/peeling off with ur Headlamps Chrome plating, then ur headlamps will crack later, so better we shall take it seriously Shocked

Hey guys, I've told you all before, best to take note of any changes on your car during own car wash. Washing your own car will make you realise any changes on your car and appriciate it more.

Chinhai8, the head lamp is a known problem by KB. You can still claim it from KB SC. Just go to Jln Ipoh SC cause their Warranty Dept. is located there. Look for Mahdi, he is able to help you. Btw, slbeh, is he still working there? Any idea?

I have requested the Kam Thong Auto Autorised SC to claim the new headlamp for me because of the headlamps' Chrome plating which is having bubles/circle/peeling off already
According to Mak, the headlamps' Chrome plating which is having bubles/circle/peeling off mainly because of our hot weather Sad

Guys, I don't wish to sound Kiasu but park your car front side outwards from your porch so that there will be sunlight on your headlamp. You might get a new head lamp which will not give you any problems at all, or it might peel off which you can claim again. Just a bit of sharing.
