Blistered paintwork

Post by emlo68 »

Hi all,

My car (Citroen C3 Feel Puretech) has developed blistered paintwork on one door panel (see picture).

Please can anyone advise me of the best way to treat this. Is it going to need a respray ?

Many thanks in advance

Jon

It looks like is has already been resprayed to me - and badly, but may be wrong. Nothing you can do with this as it's coming from the underside up. How old is it and have you been having the paintwork checked at dealership for the 12 year paintwork warranty?

HI Marc, thanks for the reply.

It is a 2017 plate and I bought it in 2019 but didn't have the blistered paintwork when I bought it.

Thanks

Crikey, looks like a bad paint job Jon. Maybe be worth taking it to a dealer and enquiring about the paint job. I wonder if has been repaired before your ownership and is now reacting?

That has been my theory Marc. Like you say its coming from the inside out so does appear to have been a previous dodgy paint job.
