Emergency brake pedal rust

My emergency brake pedal is starting to get a bunch of surface rust on it. I find this very odd it's never been wet and water has never gotten into vehicle. Is anyone else experiencing this?

My factory warranty is up mid Oct. so I'm putting a list together of all the things that need to be looked at. So far the only other thing is drivers door doesn't always unlock when you pull on outside handle.

Not that it should make a difference, but looks like you live in a high humidity location. That will start surface rust very early, even on parts inside the vehicle.

Re: Emergency brake pedal rust

I'm a few miles south and I have surface rust also. Minimal or not, humid area or not it's premature and ugly. These jeeps are sold worldwide, surely South Florida can't be the break point? This was poor finish quality on a decent piece of steel. Clean, prep, and paint, dealer might do the same if they even say yes... but they won't be as careful.

Re: Emergency brake pedal rust

Yeah it makes sense about the humidity plus it doesn't look like there was much paint on it in the first place.

Re: Emergency brake pedal rust

My 02 didn't look anything like that after 12 years of WI winters.

That looks really strange. I'd get underneath with a flashlight and look at everything around that pedal to see if you have that kind of corrosion elsewhere.

Re: Emergency brake pedal rust

The only thing I can figure is I leave my windows cracked about an inch so the interior doesn't get to hot in the FL heat but I do this on my other vehicles also and have no issues. Other then that I have no idea why it's rusting?

I have to bring Jeep in for shiftier recall at that time do you guys think I should have the dealership look at this or should I just sand it and repaint it myself?

Re: Emergency brake pedal rust

I'd have the dealer look at it, as well as the structure it's attached to. If there's rust there as well then you have an issue beyond poor paint quality.

I would let them look at it. If they say it is not covered you have to decide, which I think you already did, whether it is easier to just paint it or fight.

Good Luck
