Here is the latest I phoned Renault on 0800 number they confirmed that the car has a 12 year Anti-Corrosion Warranty (no mention of the 6yr or 8yr) great I took car down to local renault dealer.

The guy has a look at it and says it wont be covered as I have left it too long.

I have phoned back the number and they say they will investigate and advise me what to do by tomorrow.

My position is it should not matter how long I left as I am no corrosion expert (just take a look at the pic in the link above) and that the car should not have corroded in the first place.

I have a feeling they will just phone my local dealer and listen to them and tell me I cant claim.
Is there anything I can do or say to help my case as the guy on the phone never asked for my side of the story, does anyone know how this process works ?

Suppose just have to wait until tomorrow.
