Re: Calling All WK2 SRTs With "corroded" Hoods

Heep, before I send you your "chicken dinner" are your bubbles soft/dentable, i.e. filled with something other than paint? Also, what are your corners like underneath? One open like mine, both closed?

I pressed on them fairly hard and they didn't give, I didn't press harder yesterday because I didn't want to pop them if in case it is rust. That is right above the driver side headlight. I didn't notice anything else but I'll check it out in a few

Hard to take a good picture



I did use my fingernail to push it in on a couple of them and there is nothing behind it

Re: Calling All WK2 SRTs With "corroded" Hoods

I hear ya on the pic. FWIW, yours may not be pliable now but my money is on that they have to be "bad" bubbles since the other options are highly unlikely. If they were solid paint bubbles (runs) they would be more pointed and uniform plus they could not be in the fold valley (runs just don't do that) and their location is not where seam sealer goes so that's out. Keep an eye on it. I would wipe down the edge and establish good baseline pics for location and size of the bubbles so you can accurately observe/document their eventual growth.

Are your underneath corners completely sealed or is one open like in my pic?

Wow no, mine look nothing like yours. I will keep an eye on it from now on though. Mine are still sealed

Re: Calling All WK2 SRTs With "corroded" Hoods

And what I mean by pushing on it with my fingernail and nothing behind it means I can squish them almost crack them with my fingernail

Re: Calling All WK2 SRTs With "corroded" Hoods

So I didn't think I was a victim, but went out and looked closer. All are on the front edge of the hood. The 1st pictured bubble can be pressed in with a fingernail. The 2nd and 3rd pictures, there is a line/blemish with slight give, but more concerning... look at the corner of the hood where the lips meet. Is that a break in the paint - what am I seeing there? (ignore the white hard water spots) The 4th/last picture is another bubble that doesn't really give, but is in the same spot on the seam as the 1st picture...

FWIW I am under 3/36 still. Will they do anything?

The 1st and 4th pics do not look like anything to be concerned about. However, that 2nd pic looks nasty. Looks like you have corrosion and a paint break. Your dealer should replace the hood if you press for it.

Maybe not...the Corrosion Warranty for painted outer body panels is 5yr/100k...only catch is its for "holes" but this is basically but will be soon...should have no problem getting this covered as corrosion if you have a cooperative dealer who is not mr. negative.
