Bezel gets HOT!

Does anyone else with a WK have their bezel get hot? I noticed yesterday after driving for about an hour that the bezel was hot rught under where the nav screen is. Right now there Isn't and damage but years of this being exposed to heat will damage the plastic wood grain bezel. It'll start warping, then peeling I suspect.

Re: Bezel gets HOT!

I think you can safely assume that everyone has the same problem...it's probably why the cheap lightbulbs burn out on everyone..

Has anyone that made the LED swap notice if it runs any cooler?

Re: Bezel gets HOT!

Does it get hot from the two heat / air ducts on either side of the radio?

Re: Bezel gets HOT!

I suspect that is the reason that my EVIC buttons are bubbling and the black coating is flaking off. Mine gets soooo hot!!!
