Corrosion/156 warranty

Have a corrosion problem on the arm of one of my wing mirrors. Local dealer says it isn't covered by my bodywork warranty (beyond 5 yrs and not strictly the body shell) Anyone had similar issues or can verify warranty? Servicebook says 8 yrs.
Thanks dj

I'm sure door mirror mounts wouldn't be covered even if the warranty was valid.

For the warranty to be valid, the car needed to have checks at specific intervals. Most never had them.

Re: Corrosion/156 warranty

If we're talking about the "non moving" part that attaches to the moving part of the mirror (i.e. the black bit), then mine was looking pretty ropey ... I took it off, striped it down and re-sprayed it, pretty simple DIY job

(although I did both sides and resprayed them the same colour as the rest of the bodywork)

Re: Corrosion/156 warranty

Corrosion on the mirror mounts is pretty standard - just a reaction between the ally and the paint used. I too doubt that it would be covered on a warranty.

Not a big job to remove the mirrors and clean them up and repaint.....
