Clam replacement timeframe & procedure?

1595 Views 11 Replies 6 Participants Last post by  the1sen

Just discovered my clam is defective and Lotus is warrantying it.

For those of you who have had a clam replacement, what is the typical turnaround for this type of procedure?

How long will I be without my vehicle?

Do they have to ship the old clam back before they will send a new one?

I am grateful for any insight.

I brought my car in for a gas smell putting me to sleep, an antifreeze smell when it heats up, the HVAC now intermittently working, new tires, and a Star Shield warranty but have only heard from the dealer that the front clam will need to be replaced. They told me Lotus will replace the Star Shield and such as well, but nothing else.

The longest wait may be the StarShield recommended 30 days for the paint to cure before the new film can be placed (other word on the street is that if the paint is baked the starshield can be put on after 2 weeks :shrug:).
