Since the introduction of the BRZ, there have been a number of revisions to the rear combination lamps and their sealing gaskets (a.k.a. packing) to address varying customer concerns. Conditions ranging from the accumulation of water and condensation, to insect intrusion and lens / body cracking have all been addressed in previous bulletins. Recently, concerns about a cloudy appearance of the lens have created yet another bulletin. To help better organize these publications, all the related bulletins are being been condensed into this new release putting all the information in one place for easier reference.
As listed in their chronological order, design changes and procedures have been developed to address customer concerns of:
? Condition 1: Condensation accumulation- inspection for possible cracking of lamp housing
? Condition 2: Condensation accumulation- flange (retaining) nut change for combination lamp assy. to prevent rear body panel distortion and increased gasket (packing) thickness to
? Condition 3: Trunk lid contacting (and in isolated cases cracking) the combination lamp assy. when closing- change to the trunk stoppers and trunk weatherstrip
? Condition 4: Insect intrusion inside the combination lamps- further revision to the lamp assy. and gasket
? Condition 5: Cloudy appearance of the lens- anti-fog coating applied at production to the inside of combination lamp lens.
