Try taking it back to Renault under the anti perforation warranty, but take it from me, be prepared because they will put up one hell of a fight. The first time I tried this with my prior Lag 1 I failed because they said the panel had be repaired at the time I wasn't wise enough to ask to see if the repair had been done by a stealer, or by a private body shop, whatever I couldn't prove the repair had been carried out to Renaults procedures and went away unhappy. BTW this car wasn't above 12/13 months old when I bought it from a stealer, & the repaired paint work was completely unknown to me.

The second time on my current car I was an happy bunny, although I'm told the repair wasn't payed for under the anti perforation warranty, but allegedly by the stealer alone.
See Number 6 in paint work.

Be prepared to fight back and don't ever give in.
The fight could go on for many months.
Currently in hondo's garage:
1.6 Valve-Matic SR. Red hot, toasty feet.
