Just leaving the dealer is it looks like I'm going to be getting a new hood. That makes me very happy.

Yep.

It's from prep contamination in the factory where the goods were made/prepped.

Naperville is also my dealer... Dave in their bodyshop claims to have replaced dozens of these hoods on the WK2.

Jee whiz, can't wait to see what else is lurking under my paint that no one is seeing yet.

Re: Calling All WK2 SRTs With "corroded" Hoods

One MAJOR benefit to these new hoods is that they don't appear to have been made the same way, with new hoods not exhibiting the use of urethane to seal the skin to core seam across the front.

Yeah I read somewhere that they were making a change in "design"...likely meant assembly and prep details as they are made...good to know it happened...saving up my stuff for a whopper dealer visit....get it all done...

Re: Calling All WK2 SRTs With "corroded" Hoods

FCA offered to make my next car payment for me because I've been without my SRT for over a month now on and off for the last eight weeks... Fair enough, although I'm falling for these loaded loaner Renegades they keep putting me in.

Re: Calling All WK2 SRTs With "corroded" Hoods

Dealer ordered new hood and scheduled for the 13th to paint and install all under warranty. They told me it was covered under 5yr 100K warranty.

Got my new hood on and an added bonus is that I caught them before they put the Jeep badge on so the hood is debadged now!

Re: Calling All WK2 SRTs With "corroded" Hoods

So were they ever able to isolate the hood problems to certain time periods or the new or old paint system? or are they all going to be like this to varying degrees over the years.
