Door rim corrosion

Post by eriqq1 » Wed May 10, 2017 7:58 am

Hello, as a member of another forum, I came across a post where owner spotted a corrosion at the bottom rim of the doors. See the pic below.
Garage is most probably going to replace all 4 doors under warranty.
I checked mine and even my paint is not off yet, the "blister-like" texture of the paint is already there and it looks like a matter of time when paint falls off.
So, how about yours, is it all okay?

Hello,
Long time lurker, but just registered to be able to answer this post 😊
I had the exact same issue on my 2015 Cactus. When doing the more thorough spring cleaning of my car with degreasing the door sides, a lot of paint came off on three of the four doors. Showed the car to my dealer, who sent pictures to Citroën Sweden. They agreed that it was a fault and replaced the three defective doors free of charge. Strangely the drivers side door (front left) shows no signs of corrosion.

Thanks for the input.
The owner mentioned in my original post is having the issue on all of the 4 doors, photos sent to Citroen by a dealer as well, all to be replaced. Our Cactus has this paint coming off on all 4 doors as well.

Just had a 15 plate , for 3 weeks and 3 of the doors have rust on them , makes it worse that I am a spraypainter and should have noticed it . Waiting on the dealer getting back to me , but I will be wanting 3 new doors and it will just come back through as it's coming from the back of the sealer.

Do they just supply empty doors, or are they supplied fully fitted with glass etc and interior trim ready to bolt on?

Doors come without glass, trim etc ............. they then paint them and build up the doors from your old door parts.

Mine got it worse than that, aside form the corrosion on the bottom of the doors, the rust shows up at the rear right window.
