    Pics will explain what I'm talking about. It's almost like the radio is overheating and the glue/sealant is leaking out and the plastic appears melted. The dealership won't warranty it. It doesn't sit in the sun, and I don't use any weird cleaning products on it. Would love to know if anyone has ever seen such a thing. Radio never feels hot but I have no idea what else could be causing this.

    Did your radio :puke:?

    Welcome to the site and I'd be back to the dealer quickly with that.

    Mine sits in the lot at work and it's been about 100 degrees all week and nothing leaking like that on mine. If they figure it out post up what it is. Good luck :thumbsup:

    this is a 2016 T4R so you say the dealership will not investigate ?
    did this occur when operating or when you entered the vehicle on starting out ?
    if it was melted plastic it would smell. I would open up the air intake for the HVAC system and see if there is some fluid in the replaceable air filter ..

    when you go to dealership bring a witness . post back what it is and how they handled it . this could be an issue for others as well.

    Almost looks like your rear view mirror is leaking,

    Some with auto dimming displays can leak and drip.

    Please post up what comes of this.
