    I removed the hinge that had paint starting to bubble. As expected the door skin is bare. The hinge has some type of coating on the mating surface. The corrosion is pretty bad. I deal with this on aircraft and it wonít be bad to clean up and coat. Iíll have to do a bit of paint touch up on this door. Iíll be removing all hinges and coating the bare aluminum. Sucks itís only a year old. This will get bad if not dealt with.

    Man! I commend you for taking off your hinges! Iím afraid of voiding my warranty.

    Does this look like rust?

    The bolts were wicked tight. I used a small hammer and the rounded end of a windshield sealant scraper to pop the hinge from the door.

    So sorry to hear this. I will be watching mine. Did you wedge the scraper between the rear or front side of the hinges?
