Corrosion warranty

15 posts in this topic

I noticed some slight bubbling above my rear number plate. I took it into the dealership to submit a warranty claim. The claim was accepted, I got a call last week to say that they stripped back the bubbling area and couldn't find how it had started as the paint had not been penetrated. Anyway they decided to replace the whole boot lid with a brand new one just in case I have any issues in the future. I picked up the car tonight. Obviously they replace with new badges as well. 

 

Happy with that result.

I've noticed the same on my 2007 how do I make a claim

Take your log book and service history in to the dealership as the warranty department need them.  An estimator from the body shop department will take some paint depth measurements and then submit a claim to Bmw

I imagine, as long as the paint is factory or has been repaired in the past

at BMW you should be all good

It requires full service history, but not necessary with BMW. This would be breach of EU directive. The 12 anti corrosion warranty would be from date of manufacture as opposed to registration date. I had the whole tailgate painted under warranty with new badges and number plate lights.

BLOCK EXEMPTION REGULATION

"EU Block Exemption laws let customers get cars serviced outside dealer networks without invalidating their warranty. But manufacturer service schedules must be followed and original equipment parts used."

 

when I had a n47 timing chain claim in under bmw insured warranty I was worried they wouldn't approve it as it hadn't always been serviced by bmw but did have a fsh. 

 

as mentioned above regarding the EU block exemption laws, they approved the claim (engine out job!) as I had proof it had a fsh (has to be vat registered garage)
