So spoke to the dealer today.

Firstly I got told that the window screen brackets are on back order from JLR so to expect it to be a while.

I then got a phone call telling me all parts had arrived and it'll be back on Friday.

So who knows - it may or may not be ready sometime soon.

Hi Sockpuppet,

Just got back from Marshall Landrover at Melton Mowbray, to show them the same corrosion problems you have. The body shop manager came out to look at the windscreen surround and screen bracket. Also looked inside the back doors, low level sill area, and showed me some corrosion starting there as well. Took loads of photos and promised to get back to me within about a week, saying there shouldn't be any issues with getting it fixed under warranty. When I asked how long it would take, he assured me it would only be 4-5 days tops. Screen out, but screen surround left in place.

Anyway, any news on yours yet ? I mentioned your problems regarding how long you've been without yours, and he advised you contact LR customer relations, and discuss your frustrations with them, as it sounded totally unacceptable.

I'll keep you informed of my progress,

Cheers

Ashbyandy

I got the car back yesterday. Looks ok but not had chance to a proper gander / leak test yet.

I'll take it up with LR - just happy to have it back as had jobs piling up that I couldn't do with the disco sport I was given as no tow bar.

Mine had to have the surround replaced so a roof off job, still not 8 weeks worth of work.

What year is your Defender, and do you have any pictures of the screen corrosion, sounds pretty bad to need a new surround.

So 8 plus weeks in all, not bad going Sad .

HELP.. outside screen brackets.

I have this corrosion problem on my 2 -year - old Defender. I had it on my 2013 version - and they fixed them under warranty, no problem.

This time, however ,they INSIST that the problem is a ''stone chip'' and REFUSE to do anything about it. When, quite clearly, the bracket is corroding under the existing paint.

They also add that " as there have been modifications" this also obligates them from any rectification. Pardon?. Modifications are minor and do not involve anything around that area.
