Window frame rust - need advice
Two years ago I purchased a 2001 E320 wagon from a MB dealer. It came with
a 12 month Starmark warranty which expired two months ago. This morning
I noticed a bubble of rust under the paint on the upper door frame just below
the gasket which seals the frame to the roof. I picked up the gasket and
noted there was rust at various places along the track where the gasket
inserts into the door frame.
If I'm not mistaken, this is a common problem with W210 body cars, and there
may have been a recall for resealing the gasket. This one door is the only one
affected. The car is garaged daily and just turned 49,000 miles. Do I have
any recourse with the dealer for a repair?
