I had the miss fortune to pay a visit to my local MB dealer (and Daves favourite) Medway Mercedes. Whilst drying my car I broke the catch that holds the side repeater to wing. Luckily it only cost £3.50p <img src="http://www.mbclub.co.uk/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/biggrin.gif" border="0" valign="absmiddle" alt=''> which must be the cheapest thing they sell <img src="http://www.mbclub.co.uk/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/tounge.gif" border="0" valign="absmiddle" alt=''> . Anyway whilst there I thought I would ask about two scabs on the paintwork. One in the middle of the roof line were the W/screen rubber meets the roof, and the other in the middle of the rear off side passenger door. Unlike the rest off the staff there, the man from the body shop (Bob) was very helpfull, stating that yes I should have a good claim. He said he will do the paper work straight away and once the claim is agreed it has to be done within 10 days. He admitted that my model does suffer from corrossion mainly around the boot lock, although so far so good with mine. If MB ask for me to contribute 50% of cost he says I should phone the 0800 number in my service book and kick up a right stink. Apparently this generally works <img src="http://www.mbclub.co.uk/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/smile.gif" border="0" valign="absmiddle" alt=''> . So has anyone had experience of corrosion claims and any advice welcome <img src="http://www.mbclub.co.uk/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/dontgetit.gif" border="0" valign="absmiddle" alt=':dontgetit:'> , thanks.
