McCarthy Volkswagenpetrol leaking on the fuel pump seal

I bought a 2014 Polo in December 2015 from McCarthy Middelburg master cars. On Sunday the 28th of January 2018 after filling the petrol tank there was smell of petrol fumes as I drove from Middelburg to Balfour. When I arrived in Balfour we inspected the car only to find out that it was leaking petrol on the petrol pump which is situated right under the rear passenger seat. I then took it to NTT VW Heidelberg where it was discovered that the seal was damaged. My question is should I pay for this safety defect since the car's warranty apparently expired in November 2017?
