Hi all

Has anyone seen this issue?

This has appeared in my Dad's W204 C200.



MB Australia has turned down my dealer's warranty claim, but I will take this up directly with them.

We don't use any chemicals to clean the car, so it's puzzling to see this appear.

Thanks
Os

Does anyone smoke in the car and poked the button with a lit cigarette? It also looks like there are some scratches around the bubble - did those appear before the bubble or after you tried to get rid of it?

No one smokes in the family. Not sure if the scratches are before or after the bubble.

Update: MB Aust has agreed to rectify it under warranty.

Still curious as to how it formed.

Congrats on getting the dealer to fix it and not having to look at this ugly bump for as long as you own the car. :thumbsup:

It's a feature to distinguish the - key from the + key. Like the F & J keys on a computer keyboard or the 5 key on a calculator.

Riggghtt!!! The little bump next to the phone icon on the right hand side - that's a feature. The big bump next to the minus sign - that better not be a feature...

You don't know humor when you see it?
Did you actually think I was serious?
It's so obviously a defect or physical damage.

The bubble is...

Hi,

That bubble is in braille so a blind driver can know how to turn down their radio while they use the braille numbers on the drive-up ATM. . : :! (that's JK in braille) LOL. Why do they have that feature on a drive up, drivers-side ATM anyway? I think we're taking "equal access" a little to far!

I'm glad to hear that MB finally agreed to fix it for you.
