    Gauge delamation

    Went out this morning and it looked like water in my Speed and Tach Gauges. Stopped by the dealer. Service Manger took one look at it and said it was not water but delamation. He order a replacement unit, under warranty. Sure the heck look like water to me, still does .

    Delamation? So we're just making up words now, huh?

    Long as they are replacing it on their dime, call it what ever they wish.

    "Delamination is a mode of failure for composite materials[1] and steel.[2] In laminated materials, repeated cyclic stresses, impact, and so on can cause layers to separate, forming a mica-like structure of separate layers, with significant loss of mechanical toughness. Delamination also occurs in reinforced concrete structures subject to reinforcement corrosion, in which case the oxidized metal of the reinforcement is greater in volume than the original metal. The oxidized metal therefore requires greater space than the original reinforcing bars, which causes a wedge-like stress on the concrete. This force eventually overcomes the relatively weak tensile strength of concrete, resulting in a separation (or delamination) of the concrete above and below the reinforcing bars."

    I will blame spell check on that one.
    Replacement won't get here in time for our trip . So going with it as is should not be an issue.

    That sucks. Glad it is something the dealer will take of.
