Paint delaminating

Postby kwikfab on Sun Mar 21, 2021 3:24 pm

Hi,
did a search and couldn't find anything other than clear coat issues. has anyone had the paint just fall off? after a few days of rain it's like my paint just delaminates and falls off in chunks!. It has happened for about a year now but only on the tail gate so I honestly wasnt that worried, but after the few days of heavy rain its coming off the rear passenger door and a small spot around the fuel cap. basically my white car is slowly turning primer grey. there is no damage to the grey primer surface it's just like the white paint let go. I guess you could say if the car was covered in paper and you wet it thats what it looks like. Time to see what the warranty is really like I guess. :oops:

Model?
Year of manufacture?
When purchased?

So it's still under warranty?
You've contacted your dealer?

I've seen it before.

2013, tailgate started a year ago but I wasn’t worried, but now it looks like the whole car is going to go . I’m getting a film build test next week so I can go to dealer armed with all the info

Paint thickness isn't relevant for this problem, but maybe nice to have. Get a written report from a well respected paint shop.

Toyota had a huge problem with this a few years ago and I did a few Citroens that had the same issue. Something goes wrong in the factory, either product or procedure, and the paint just doesn't stick. Generally happens in batches so kind of surprised yours is the first we've heard of.

update:
after being inspected by a professional, waiting on printed report
Paint thickness turns out to be totally relevant
factory spec film build is to be above 120microns, mine is reading around 30microns including primer, this is way below and does not allow enough buildup to resist UV.
next stop dealer
