Do I have any recourse with the dealer or AA as our Fiesta needs a new injector?

We recently purchased a Ford Fiesta 1.4 diesel and had an AA check done on it. We now find that it needs a new fuel injector and two new alloy wheels, neither of which are apparently covered by the expensive warranty we took out. Do we have any come back on the garage or AA?
