Rust bubbles on top door surrounds?
« on: March 13, 2018, 06:26:28 PM »
Anyone have or had this problem?

Washed the car the other day and it looked mint until I saw some bubbles on the top of the door frame, anyone here tackled this? mine is Aug 2009 so will the warranty still be valid?

All BMW' s from 2004 have a 12 year anti corrosion warranty.
Can be voided by stone chips , damage , neglect etc.
Some corrosion warranties are perforation warranties.
Loads of examples and photos on the net about what people have had claims on BMW's
Best to take it to your local BMW dealer for assessment .

That reminds me of my E53 where I had a couple of bubbles on the bonnet, and they declined as there was a stone chip about a metre away from it  O:-)
