    Bodywork - Rust Blisters - Anyone?

    Anyone had this problem with the Astra Mk5?

    I have a fair amount of blisters around my bodywork.
    Thankfully they have 6yr bodywork warranty but I'm hoping Vauxhall agree to it.

    Just wondering if anyone's had this problem?


    Thanks.

    I might be mistaken but i thought to have the bodywork warranty there is other stuff that must be done at the service intervals, and IIRC it only covers perforation.

    hopefully i'm wrong and they'll fix it for you

    It covers rust that hasn't been caused by a stone chip/other damage. If it is rusting from underneath sealed paint then it will be covered.

    You are supposed to get the service manual stamped for the bodywork check every annual service though - if in doubt or Vauxhall are no help speak to trading standards who may well do an independent assessment.
