corrosion warranty

I've just bought a second hand C180. Through a thorough inspection I've found out that it has small corrosions bulding up under the bonnet and on one side of the passenger's door. The car was last serviced by Mercedes on Oct. 2002. The last service which was on Oct 2003 was not from Mercedes. Would Mercedes UK still cover to fix it under warranty as the car is not even five years old and mercedes servicing wouldn't have avoided it from corroding anyway. I bought a mercedes hoping that it will be rust free for at least 10 years. The car is booked on Mercedes garage for a B service next week anyway. I just need some advice before I approach them about the corrosion.

RE: corrosion warranty

Non MB servicing should be a problem. But check disclaimers on the corrosion warranty - it may be only for "see thru" type of corrosion.
