Rear body mount rust


Recommended Posts

Hi All,

Thought i would post some pics and ask a few questions on this ... hope someone can help ..

I recently started poking about underneath (bad idea) and found the rear body cross member has a couple of holes in it and the rear P-Side body mount is rusted and detached from the body shell ..

I have an MOT due next week and need to know if its likely to go through / is it safe ... or should i get it welded up .. ?

I dont think the rear body member/sill is rotten all over and could probably be patch .. see photos and let me know your thoughts




Many thanks in advance

It will definitely fail the MOT unless the tester is blind or bribeable. The mount looks totally ruined, so making a new one and welding it on is the best thing to do.


Definitely needs a new if you can`t fabricate one youself or get somebody to do it for you, or you can buy one ready made about £35 i think, but cannot remember who makes them, maybe scrapiron thinking about it.
