I’d say you could go as thin as you want, that way you’d be less likely to see a gap between the hinge and the door. I originally thought of doing this but I chose to treat the bare metal on the door and the bolts with fluid film instead. If you could get something that’s dielectric, it would be best since it would slow down any galvanic corrosion. I really feel that the steel bolts going into the aluminum hinge/door is what’s causing this.How thin of a piece of plastic film would be ample enough to protect against this in the future? Once i have mine done that is what i think ill do. Huge selection from McMaster-Carr. Any thoughts?
Where do you see this is safe for car paint?Corrosion reports here are awful. Truly sorry for those Jeepers dealing with this inexcusable, ongoing problem. For those of us with ‘21 Wranglers (or anyone not showing corrosion….yet), I’m using “Corrosion Block” on hinges and elsewhere. I own a boat here on Coronado (San Diego) and Corrosion Block is a must-have. I use it to stop advancement and/or block corrosion from starting on everything metal. It works. Available on Amazon.
maybe the dealership does not have a bodyshop?Longtime reader...
First of all, thank you to all for this forum. I'm not one to post much anywhere but through these discussion threads, I've learned quite a bit of info.
So unfortunately, I just recently found the paint bubbling issue (door and hinge areas).
I've been told by my local dealership that it's on me to get an estimate from a local body shop, then the dealership will take that estimate and submit to Chrysler to see if it will be covered.
***I was under the impression the dealership would start the whole process by taking pics first...
I will note the dealership could not find the service bulletin in their system when I mentioned it in person. I've since provided them that info via email, but they are still directing me to go get an estimate first. Is this standard practice?
I'm still under the 3/36K warranty for just a couple more weeks.
They definitely don't have a body shop so yeah, that might very well be the reason! I just thought they would begin documenting the process maybe?maybe the dealership does not have a bodyshop?
I have appointment to have my steering gear box replaced/inspected...
Asked about the paint issues, they referred me to their "sister" dealership about 10 miles south.. they have the bodyshop at their location...
I've read on this forum before...I would prefer to have been given the choice to go to the autobody place of my choice not theirs. The place the dealer sent me to would not have been my first choice.
If your close to the end of your 3/36, find another dealer or ensure that they open a work order to ensure that it is logged.They definitely don't have a body shop so yeah, that might very well be the reason! I just thought they would begin documenting the process maybe?
DisappointingI am going through the buy back process for 2nd time right now. Yes 2nd with JL. Electrical stuff is why with 2019 but has bubbling around hinges too. Just order 2021 and asked corporate guy if have figured something out on hinges and paint issues. He said not doing anything, there are no paint issues. So I guess everyone on here is dreaming or something. Sad. Until people start leaving won’t do anything I guess. Sad
