Possible rust on boot lid???

Post by mikaroq » Sat Oct 06, 2018 1:33 pm

Hi all
Has anyone else noticed what looks like rust on the boot lid on the flat surface just below the rear window? Have washed the car a couple of times now and what you can see in the pictures is not lifting, plus we had lifeshine applied and rest of car the dirt lifts really easily.

Have made dealership aware now by email in case it is a problem, but will probably need to take it up to them for a closer inspection...

Just wondering if anyone else has seen this on theirs at all - seems most noticeable on the left side below where the wiper blade would run its first sweep.

Thanks folks!

Have you tried clay bar? Colleague had something similar which he found to be road grime, he had it on The rear and side panels on his white car.

Was just crusty dirt. As suggested, light clay bar worked a treat
