The drivers side front turn signal popped out of my 2005 Lotus Elise today (again) as I was driving down the highway - once again staying connected by the wires and proceeding to beat the living hell out of my paint. This happened to me before a few weeks ago and I ordered a new seal and replacement unit from Lotus of West Covina. I got the part and installed it - and then today (less than 300 miles later) - the same damn thing happened. Like everyone else that's had this problem, it's the stupid cheap-ass plastic clip on the bottom that broke. Very upsetting. I sent an email to Lotus of West Covina and told them what's happened and I've asked them if they would either send me a replacement turn signal and seal or give me my money back - but we'll see if they're actually willing to do that or not. In the meantime it's obvious that I'm far from alone with this problem and I've read here about the bunggie cord fix - and if Lotus of West Covina is unwilling to replace the faulty part then that's what I'll do. But this begs the question - WTF? Why would this happen after such a short period of time? Frankly I'm not real excited about just putting another one in there like I did a few weeks ago because I'm worried that the same dang thing will happen again. Is ir right for me to even ask Lotus of West Covina to replace it or give me my money back? Personally I consider this a faulty design and I think Lotus should be flipping the bill this time.
