Rust on Roof

Recommended Posts

after reading this ive noticed a small amount of bubbling on the roof of my car as well, should i just phone vw up and explain this will they understand or is there something in particular i should say to them the car is a 99 so it should be covered under the 12 year warranty?

Just literally give them a ring mate explain whats wrong and it might be worth popping in to have a chat with the warrenty people. If they give you trouble, print this thread off and tell them to contact Newton Abbot Murry VW and they are the people i dealt with and mine got accepted. Hope this helps.

I'm glad I've stumbled across this thread as I was looking at the guttering style slits on the roof and was thinking "Oooh.....that'll rust soon....lovely". I never knew they would cover this but I suppose if they have designed something and its going to fail sooner or later they would have to cover it.

Brilliant thread!

The bubbling on mine is more on the side rather than the roof, is that the same as everyone elses?

You can get the roof done for free, im not too sure about the handle, but still worth a try. Just go to your local dealer and take it from there, let me know how you get on and any more questions, feel free to pm me.

Hi, ye just having mine done on roof and boot. They are very good with rust warranty

Heya guys and gals, I had rust bubbling through on the gutter type parts on the roof and took it to my dealership today and they are going to investigate it, it doesn't have accident damage or anything and i was wondering if i had a chance of the claim under the 12 year corrosion guarantee and if anyone else has this problem and succeeded with a claim, thanks everyone!!!!!

Lupo's have a 12 year corrosion guarantee?

Yes they do, so if you have a problem and your car is still eligible then i would take advantage of it.

hope all gos as well as mine did Rich, good luck and keep everyone posted, helps everyone get in on this and see that the system works, thanks.
