Corrosion Warranty

Recommended Posts

I have just noticed bubbling under the paint in the centre of the lower section of the nearside rear door of my 2010 Black A8. their are no chips and the bubbling is unbroken?

Can anyone advise please.

Hello Mike,

It’s difficult to come up with an explanation without actually seeing the problem or seeing a photo. Unbroken bubbling can be associated with filled-over rust ( worse possible case), through rusting - but not yet broken the paint, or in its least worrying form, micro blistering due to actual paint application issues. Each has characteristic sizing, from larger to smaller as each possible issue has been described. 

Kind regards,

Gareth.

Hello Mike,

Sorry, I missed the bit about warranty. Not sure what the warranty period actual is, and this might be a pessimistic view, but the warranty normally applies only when the car has full dealer service history where the paint inspection part has been assessed and filled in. Even then, the paint thickness will first be measured, to assess whether the panel has been resprayed, and if so, this is likely to affect the warranty. 

Kind regards,

Gareth.
