The stealership damaged my paint with brake fluid while changing it

is it fixable? Nothing is getting it off.

 

i havent tried polishing or such things, i have only tried the usual liquid cleaners

Shouldn't the stealership be liable for that damage?

Of course they will be. They said “bring it for repairing when you want”, but i doubt they can fix it. Is it fixable or the whole panel should be replaced?

^^^^ They will just replace the panel  ~$150 at retail.  The tech (or better stated, young child) will just get a stern talking to.

That’s a matte finish - they’ll just replace that panel as others have said - repair would be dearer than replacing it I’d have thought

I'm actually surprised it attacked the plastic like that though some brake fluids are much harsher than others. Is that the factory finish with no after market coating applied?

F^*@#%^! kids man. You cant get a single skilled employee to work on your bike at the dealerships. Always the stupid interns. I always work on my bike myself but i needed new  brake pads URGENTLY (see attachment) and then brake fluid why not while i am here and tadaaaam

TL;DR version

 

If damage by brake fluid, it doesn't just take coating off, it corrodes into the material. So they will have to replace the panel/repaint the surface.

 

As for the brake pad, oh wow...did they put the brake pads in backward from what I am seeing?!?!?!?!?!
