Still waiting for those shots, Tigas...if you can...if you can...
That's great news, well done. When the car goes in, it would be very helpful if you could ask the dealer for some details on the authorisation of this work from Audi (might be a campaign code or reference number for them to invoice the work to)I had a phone call 5 days later telling me audi will cover 100% of the cost and bodyshop will be in touch, so good news.
Its oxidisation of the aluminium and its quite common I'm afraid. Theres a tiny blister on our drivers door; I think its likely to be caused by moisture retention under the window rubber. There isnt any screws or anything under there; you can simply prise that rubber up to expose the extent of the reaction. I tend to look out for this when I see A2's close up and its quite widespread. Like David said, its also known to happen at the corners on the roof and at the seam between then rear window and the tailgate.Does anyone have any ideas of what the cause of this corrosion could be?
Are there any screws or other parts that could cause a reaction in this area and is it best to leave it or try to do something about it?
It has been like this since I bought the car but the paint seems largely intact on top of it.
If so is it best to take it to the dealer?
