Corrosive Damage

2018 AS 25FB, in washing the AS today opened the rocks guards and found what appears to be corrosive damage on both sides of AS body, plus on inside of both guards. I attached several photos hopefully they transmit.
Wondering if others may have experienced same and what action should be taken to prevent spreading? Is this a potential warranty issue (still under 2yr warranty)? Any feedback would be appreciated.

Thanks,
Tom

Yep, contact damage. The rock guard and the body have matching, exactly opposed rub marks. The stainless steel rock guard is touching the body at that point.

Or something became wedged between the two for a while.
