Known Issues - Evora - TechWikiPoor fitting passenger airbag lid
The clips which hold down the passenger side airbag lid can sometimes fail, causing the lid to no longer sit flush over the airbag module. These clips are designed to break when the airbag is deployed, and so the failure should not a safety issue and should not affect the operation of the airbag.
These clips can be replaced to remedy the issue, however doing so involves removing some parts of the dash and given the implications of working around the airbag are best carried out by an approved Lotus Service Centre.
Because Dubai heat is different that Arizona heat? rotfllol.. why even bother to comment then
Because I'm not a confrontational jerk.lol.. why even bother to comment then
I appreciate your input, and am in the midst of acquiring an Evora myself.Because I'm not a confrontational jerk.
If I was, I would say fine, replace the dash and the exterior trim pieces, keep parking it outside in oven-like temperatures and direct sunlight, wash, rinse and repeat the cycle.
Instead, I tried to share my experience living in a place that makes Arizona seem like paradise with two different Evoras without having these troubles . . . without resorting to being a jerk about it.
I went to school in Tucson for four years....
We're about to have a new dealer here. I e-mailed them yesterday and they are still waiting for final approval and will have some Evoras as soon as they get it. They'll have access to Evoras that are currently in Lotus USA's warehouse.I appreciate your input, and am in the midst of acquiring an Evora myself.
I also love working on cars. And, although I'm by far an expert on sports cars (actually, I'm still a newbie and don't know that much about them ) I've done my share of work on classics and antiques in the past, including full frame off restorations/modifications in a 4 car garage. I still work on my classics regularly. However, I'm less inclined to tear apart a new car I have a warranty on to fix myself. No real reason for that.Funny, I see peoples posts about that look and, to me, it makes it look like real leather, not the plastic stuff. I would never waste my time claiming something like that. So they pull out dash, scratch something else inadvertantly, etc. Guess the driving is more important to me than that .1% issue. Not a Type A compulsive. I love working on the car as much (probably a lot more) than most folks, and I just don't let the miniscule things bother me. Now are they replacing my left door leather because its an inch short?___> YES!, my chrome bevels around taillights because the chrome is half gone-->YES! Just sayin...don't expect Rolls Royce fit and finish from a Lotus, pick your battles for when you really need it.
