If this corrosion is not treated there is a possibility the bonnet striker support may fail which will allow the bonnet to open whilst the vehicle is in motion. Early warning signs or symptoms of corrosion can be seen by the driver around the bonnet striker support and on the leading edge of the bonnet also the bonnet may not lock correctly.
Recall affected vehicles to inspect the area around the bonnet striker support and take preventive action to protect the area from corrosion which may include the replacement of the bonnet if required.
