Re: bodywork warranty
I had a similar occurrence with a Lag 1 an Ex demonstrator car purchased from Renault @ 10 old a smaller area of blistering & slight rust had appeared in a small section of the paint work on the rear nearside wing, low & behold Renault said a none Renault authorised paint work job had been carried out in the say area, my request for remedial action was therefore turned down.
Although in fairness & much later with a Lag 2 a number 6 appeared on the bonnet although Renault claimed no blame after much & relentless pestering from myself they eventually caved in & the whole bonnet & the tops of the front wing were satisfactorily resprayed, my advice would be to complain, complain, if that doesn't work complain & complain again until they get completely pi$$ed off of seeing you coming, if required complain to the top person of the dealers tree, thats what finally worked for me.
