    Zen,
    No need to get insurance as those idiots wont give you for such a small damage,better get the dent done outside & then you can get the rear reverse light fixed in FASS after dent work.

    If the dent is on the boot, im pretty sure they'll say that the whole boot has to be painted which will definitely not be cheap at FASS. They won't paint just the affected area since they cannot match the color.

    As you can see from the pic, the major damage has happened at the left bottom of boot door just below Punto badge. And thank goodness not much paint has chipped off. Just area of a 1Rs coin size. Ofcourse the plastic bumper has few more scratches.

    There is a person by name Pramod 9900298669 and he used to be an inspector and evaluator with SBI insurance and now he has a huge network of mechanics and insurance agents where you could get the best deal closer to you place or slightly farther if you are willing to travel and you could also select the mechanic or body shop either based on distance/price.

    You could simply send him the pic on whatsapp and he could tell you the cost also.

    I checked my warranty - it says 2years / 80,000km anti-corrosion warranty. So I am getting this done outside.

    Sadly even I spotted a (small as of yet) rust formation on the panel just besides the red light on top of Punto's boot. Will check further in next FASS visit soon.

    May be a matter of dealing with missing sealants at the joints. Have a look at mine http://www.teamfiat.co.in/punto-1-3-mjd/8114-absolute-emotion-5.html#post841891929
    FASS have applied sealants to those locations and touched it up. No idea how long it's going to last.

    Actually, this is not the mud-flap but the wheel arch liner.

    Thank you for giving me technical name for that, I do not knew it is called "wheel arch liner" until you mentioned (Rookie in learning mode::T)
    Ramkay guys changed it under warranty :)
