Repair Your Lotus Marker Light

The Lotus Elise/Exige marker lights suffer from broken posts that attach it to the clam. These plastic posts can snap when an overzealous hand tightens a bit too generously. Replacement parts are getting harder to find so repairing your broken part is often the best option.

The Sticky Lotus Cluster Needle

Many of you have had concerns with the cluster needles sticking in your Elise or Exige. There is a trick you can try before taking it in to your Dealer that may fix the problem - especially if it is nothing more than just a stuck needle. Here are the steps:

  1. Open your driver's door

  2. Press and hold the trip button (Located on left side of steering column)

  3. Turn the ignition key on

You should see your needles shimmy or it will cause the stuck needle to fall down. If it works, great! If not, you will most likely need a new cluster, so head over to the dealer.

Even Stock Shocks Should Be Rebuilt

We know many of you are happy with the stock shock valving that came on your Lotus.  But all dampers need to be refreshed at some point.  Typically mileage is what most use to gauge when to replace them but age also plays a big role.  Since shocks degrade slowly and drivers unconsciously compensate, most don't realize that the suspension is not working as well as Lotus intended them to.
