Well, it's a fail I'm afraid. :(  Not as bad as it could have been:


The only problem is the welding bits. This is under where the battery tray was, which had totally rusted away so I moved the battery to the  other side.

There's a small hole at the bottom, but what the hell needs doing to fix that??

The other part is under the car, near the front of the sill, again no idea what it would take to sort it.
The car is now out of ticket so I cant plod about too much for quotes.

Anyone know a good place in Barnsley area that could tackle this for me?

Ok so i've had a bit of a better look today. The suspension spring mounting is actually the inner wing where the battery tray bolt is! As the tray was nowt but dust, the rust has gone through around the bolt too.

the subframe mount is actually where the jacking point is joined, but after removing the side skirt some work is needed at the end of the sill/ base of wing, as there is a big hole there!




Hopefully not going to be too expensive to fix. The sill looks pretty ropey too, considering it was done for the mot last year! That will have to wait for next year though when a major rust removal will be the order of the day!

Have a poke around. Mine was the same, but my big hole just kept getting bigger!

LOL, I've got the skirt off and the outer sill is solid.
