Inside? I cant tell where those pictures are being taken. Is that under the steering wheel?
Yes, inside. Near the pedals. Look up, has a view of the steering column, I took the pictures there. Inside the car dashboard structure.

Those parts probably had rust before they were installed. They may have been stored outside for a while before installation. I guess you can see what your dealer will do for you.

I think I'd be more concerned about why it's there than worrying about removing it. One of the photos shows rust on fastener threads - above the nut. To me that indicates the vehicle was assembled when the rust started. I'll have to look at mine when I get home tomorrow.

It almost looks like your jeep was in a flood or something. The rust on the steering knuckle could be considered normal since its just bare steel. A quick spray of wd40 and you'd be good. The rust on some of the painted materials is not normal.

So it is impossible to hit the wd in parts , very tight , difficult access , only even dismounting .

How are you? PAK325
Capital of Brazil. It would be important to know the level of problems related to this type , if it occurs there as well. It may be indications for Recall. I am willing to exchange experiences if you interest.

If you are in Brazil, then your Renegade was assembled there. Most of us have Renegades that were assembled in Italy so our experience probably won't help you much.....

I just bought a 2015 (still brand new) Renegade for my son and have noticed Rust on the accelerator pedal, the nuts under the driver and passenger seats, and near the tires. I took it back to the dealer service department and they told me that the interior of the car has no paint and I should expect to see rust inside the car. I'm in Virginia.

Plenty of the interior of the car has paint. unpainted steel will rust. But that's not a sufficient explanation IMO unless you are paraphrasing the actual information.

As someone stated up thread, an unpainted steering knuckle will eventually patina. If you live near the coast, this will happen faster. But painted surfaces should not, and much of the interior of the vehicle are painted surfaces.

That isn't bad, especially if you live near the ocean or in a humid environment. Those parts used to be not painted. They got smart over the last 30 years.
