as youre car is old you have to expect these things
its a well known common fault
They are selling the cars with a 12 year anti corrosion warranty so the OP does have an argument if he has followed Renault guidelines ..They may argue certain parts of the body trim are not covered and it is in the small print BUT do you get the small print BEFORE or AFTER you buy the car ..been there with the 4 year paint warranty won it
