Rust! Yes rust and its not the door sills or wheel arches.
At the top of both the slide door openings where the roof meets the slide door rail is rusty but its hidden under a rubber seal so I only found it last week when I was doing a full clean and slid the seals off to clean under them.
Auto part Automotive exhaust Automotive exterior

Anyway took it to ford, they said as it hasn't been serviced by ford I will be very unlikely to get it fixed under the 12 year anti perforation warranty. I then asked if they check under the seals when servicing the car and he said no...
Anybody else have this issue?
Anyone else ever checked under the seals?
Anybody ever tried to claim on Fords rust warranty?
It's definitely a design fault and I think it would affect a large percentage of grand c maxs.

Hi i have the same problem on a 2014 Grand C Max i have contacted Fords and our car has been serviced by Ford dealers from new
They want a Ford warranty dealer to confirm its Perforation before they consider any help under the 12 year Perforation warranty they are trying to
fob me off that they consider it is corrosion not perforation and as such we have not had a result from the dealer we took the car to, to have this looked at
Ford Body Shop has not replied to the CRC so we are still pushing for a positive outcome


Perhaps you need to contact Fords CRC - Customer Relations Centre email at 020 3564 4444 or e-mail [email protected]

We have come across on the web many people with the same issue from Denmark and Germany I thinks it is a design fault on the weather trip runner over the
sliding door, that it retains water over time and starts the rust perforation

Best of luck Mike
