Is a write-off still under warranty?

I bought a 2019 Citroen Dispatch Van in the UK with 6,000 miles on it. Had light frontal damage (a wing and a headlight), but was recorded as a category S. I bought the wing and headlamp off Citroen and got the vehicle repaired by an approved body shop. The radio is not working correctly (a common fault) and a sensor went in the exhaust. Citroen refuses to do it under warranty because it's category S. By law can it refuse to do this work? I will get an engineer's report if required but it won't make a difference. In fairness, the dealership is willing to do it but Citroen won't honour it.

What should be covered by a dealer warranty?


I'm buying an Audi A6 (2010) from a Nissan garage. What should be covered by the garage guarantee? Is the garage responsible for checking for previous finance etc? Is there a way of extending the official Audi guarantee?
