  1. Bubbles in Paint at Door Hinges

    FINAL re-spray. Still a couple spots of dirt in paint and they owe me Jeep emblems for front fenders. Can't believe they removed and were not even going to reinstall until I pointed it out!! Paint match is much improved - not perfect - you can still tell difference in sunlight between...
  2. The Non-Rubicon Jl & JLU Thread

    Sahara with Rubicon suspension and 1/2" Teraflex spacers. All 4 doors and front Fenders repainted under warranty to fix bubbling around hinges. Like many of you just didn't need a 4:1 transfer case or disconnecting sway bar on a daily driver - wasn't worth the $ for something I'll NEVER use in...
  3. Mopar Grab Handles - do you like them?

    They tend to bang into the windows alot when on bumpy roads.
  4. Bubbles in Paint at Door Hinges

    And that is how it SHOULD be done!!! I plan on doing my hood hinges when it gets back from body shop, then every hinge on my JL will have paint behind it. Question - what do you mean by "foilage" - a gasket or seporator between hinge and door?
  5. The infamous bubbling paint around door hinges questions

    I think people equate most aluminum with anodized which looks raw but is corrosion-protected.
  6. Would you order a new Jeep Now?

    Very doubtful they will "retool" that part of the line unless there are major body changes - suspect same process
  7. Bubbles in Paint at Door Hinges

    It will help but only real solution is to put protective coating on raw material (PAINT!!!)
  8. The infamous bubbling paint around door hinges questions

    I was also going to hold off, but bubbling got worse. Corrosion, once started, will only continue and get worse. Wanted it done inside warranty to protect myself later on. Also, wanted to force it to be fixed right way by painting under hinges so chances of it coming back would be...
  9. Bubbles in Paint at Door Hinges

    There have been White, Mojito, Granite, and Ocean ones reported in this thread alone Any color correlation is just opinion or coincidence. Someone would have to confirm, but the JK's (i.e. the 2013) were on-the-hinge issues only-no bubbling on door panel paint. They had steel door panels and...
  10. Bubbles in Paint at Door Hinges

    Have not changed manufacturing process - so YES it is still a problem
  11. Would you order a new Jeep Now?

    NO - NOT until they get their paint issues resolved. I would be glad to order and wait if it were only due to chip shortage - providing they had a quality product where paint wouldn't bubble.
  12. Bubbles in Paint at Door Hinges

    Yup I would push to have it covered. Luckily, my dealer provides and I have been in a loaner since 8/25 for this issue - 5 weeks/3k miles so far and still not done.
  13. Bubbles in Paint at Door Hinges

    Some dealers I understand have pre-approval to perform these repairs, while other have to submit photos and that it was takes the time for Stellantis to get back with approval. That is only what I have heard. My experience with my dealer was right out of the gate they were going to fix it. I...

    Pics of the bubbling and paint mismatch are earlier in this thread along with corroded tailgate PM me if you would like more or cannot find and I would be glad to share.
  15. Bubbles in Paint at Door Hinges

    Yes that is (1) of (2) different problems with these ridiculous aluminum body panels - not well exececuted. Went to pick mine up last night and color match was good but now dirt in paint . Third times a charm (I guess).
  16. Bubbles in Paint at Door Hinges

    see post #1601 above- TWO different reasons for bubbles 1) at hinges - ALL will eventually corrode/bubble due to manufacturing process with raw aluminum under hinges - The fact is that NO PROCESSES have changed so you can expect same results 2) contamination under paint sealed in on aluminum...
  17. Bubbles in Paint at Door Hinges

    Another thought from my post above. It is obvious that Chrysler THINKS the hinge/panel is being "sealed" with the painting process and that no water/salt/etc will get under the hinge and start the corrosion process allowing it to travel under paint and bubble. There TSB even states that as a...
  18. Bubbling paint around door hinges

    I would go to any dealer and have @JeepCares involved to assist the communication with said dealer.
  19. Bubbles in Paint at Door Hinges

    From the TSB quoted above: " 1. Remove affected panel. Refer to the detail service procedures available in: DealerConnect> Service Library under: Service Info> 23-Body> Exterior> Removal. CAUTION! **For any panel with exterior mounted hinges, avoid removal of the hinge from the Class-A panel...

    Good luck with your repairs. Make sure you keep us posted on how it turns out and whether or not they paint under the hinges. Still haven't got mine back from its re-spray to correct the mismatched paint from the original repair. It's been at the dealer 4 weeks now.
