Hi,

My 2017 ST seems to have started developing small cracks in the headlights. Has anyone else had this? A ringing Ford tomorrow to see if this is a common fault or if there is anything they can do.

thanks

Question, who or how do you wash your car? Could be a strong mix of APC attacking the plastic if you use the carpark carwash people.

Cant see anything Ford would do, probably say its been caused by acidic wash or something, I had one changed on my 17 StLine under warranty due to electrics fault on the DRL, Its a complete unit, service manager said just short of a grand...ouch!, thank goodness it failed during warranty period

Hi,
No i wash it myself Snow foam, meguiars car shampoo and meguiars quick wax. Never put anything acidic to them. Use Autoglym fast glass on them and never used the DA on them.

I haven't had small cracks but have had one of my headlights replaced under warranty as there was a small area of peeling around 2" square. Luckily I took pictures of it before I tried to remove it thinking it was something stuck on the headlight as then it looked like it had been sanded down. I too only wash it myself always using non-abrasive materials. I've had Xenon lights on my past 4 cars now and none of them have had this issue either. The other headlight is fine.

I tend to agree, that looks like Kosovan car wash rash, not sure you’ll have much luck with Ford but worth a try 👍

It's clear lacquer, something damage it. Have to be sanded down and repainted with hardener. Very unusual 😕
