    Please don't think I'm insulting you, Ging, but are you sure they are screws, because usually, if the links are screwed, they will fit a normal watchmakers screwdriver. What I've been caught out with in the past is split pins that appear to look like screws, (and I've wasted plenty of time trying to remove them with a screwdriver! :laughing2dw:) that require pushing out rather than screwing. The slot in the end of a split pin is much smaller, but gives the illusion of a tiny screw. Here's what I mean in the pics below. I did a thread about this problem once, but can't find it now.
    These are what the screws in a  normal screwed bracelet look like (Top links) The ones in the bottom links look like screws but are the ends of split pins.

    Again, these are split pins, not screws, and they need pushing out from the opposite end to the 'slot'. There's usually an arrow on the link showing the direction of push.

    I apologise if I'm stating the obvious to you, but it was just a thought that might save you a trip to the watchmakers when allowed.

  4. Spoke to the Peugeot dealer where the car was bought and they have asked me to bring the car in for a diagnostic check on the paintwork on Feb 2nd. According to the original invoice, we paid for 'Peugeot Protect' at the time of buying which was a 'For life' paint protection product. Will be interesting to see what transpires. Pretty sure it's not rust, but rather a failure of the paint/lacquer itself.
