    bnzjon did u check with the TSS for a replacement headlamps??
  2. TASS guys refused to change it under warranty. I had to speak to IAT with pictures of my headlamps to get a free replacement.
    I am yet to change them. Will go tommorrow for the change as the headlights were made available only today.
  3. Got the headlight assembly changed under warranty/FOC. Now i have crystal clear headlamps :mrgreen: :mrgreen: :mrgreen:

    Congratulations !!

    Only wish the "Had to speak to FIAT" part could be avoided !!

    But this is good : in case someone else has this problem : this thread will be a good reference.

    Thanks bnzjon for keeping us updated :)

    Saw 2 Linea's yday on road which had these darkened Headlight/ lens. It was visible clearly.

    Good to see that your issues are sorted out Binze. And yeah, till now have not heard Fiat refusing any warranty claims. In fact, its also seen replacing parts FoC which are usually not covered under warranty. Only thing is "Had to involve Fiat" part.

    I saw a Invoa today this morning which as per the registration (a tourist cab) is not even an year old, the headlights as per the following picture are so black on the side. Is this comman to all cars. I felt that Toyota set very high standards regarding qulaity of their cars, but looking at the picture !!! :confused

    On the above note, try to check Toyota Innova's tail lights now in monsoon. I see quite a few daily in my loooong city drive from home-office-home & 50% of them have tail lights filled with water till half the level. Try it next time you're behind an Innova.

    I have observed this darkened part of headlamps in many Toyota Innova vehicles. I thought, it was a design feature. :shocked

    I just checked with my friends car a new Inova. The design feature on the side of the headlights is in a Checked pattern, but the Invoa in picture the headlight side seams to have blackned or the checked pattern changed. Not sure.
