Hi guys , after a close inspection of my new recently purchased2006 159 , found rust bubbles on bott corner of rear pass door , wondered if it was a problem ? And indeed , would I get it sorted thorough the 8 year paintwork warranty ? Cheers in advance

You only get rust claims if it rusts from the inside out.

This sounds like untouched stone chips or a bad repair.

Try anyway, you never know!

i tried to claim for a rusting 159 door but was told to jog on as previous poster advised the get out clause was rust is only covered from inside out. The car was 4 years old and in good nik /FSH.

I complained to AR UK but again got me no where. I presumed the door had been repaired by previous owner hence the rust.

Almost certainly not manufacturing on one door. It will be a repair with a new door skin that wasn't treated after welding.

original doors should still have the plstis gel protective covers over the corners of rear door. when i was looking for my 159. one i saw had plastic on one side but not on the other, upon further look thw whole side of the sar had been resprayed. and filled the magnet confirmed this another one to walk away from.

I was wondering what body warranty AR's had, what does it cover and so on. Anybody have a copy of a body warranty on paper or pdf? I havnt got any issues but would make an interesting read.

Like what parts it covers...sills, doors, lower struts etc
