Alarm has a snotty nose

Post by Koolflyer » Sat 02 Dec, 2017 16:55

Just noticed the other day that the alarm is really quiet, and upon further investigation the alarm unit [OS rear in engine bay, between bulkhead and the wheel arch] has what looks like a snotty nose! A cream liquid appears to have at some point leaked out of the alarms siren unit and now has solidified. It doesn't appear to be leaking anymore but the siren is rather pathetic! Any one had this problem before? :puzzle:

Not had problem, but it looks as if back-up battery has leaked. Don't know if they are replaceable.
