Paint is an important part of the car's rustproofing and should therefore be checked regularly. The most common types of paintwork damage are stone chips, scratches, and marks on the edges of wings, doors and bumpers.
The colour code label is located on the car's door pillar and becomes visible when the right-hand rear door is opened.
It is important that the correct colour is used.
Touching up minor paintwork damage
