help with locating and repairing crack


Recommended Posts

Hi there - been away, read that as busy, for a while.

While running an emergency wilderness SAR mission to save a snake bite victim I seem to have pushed the olde girl just a little to far (fast) and now have a squeak/creak noise from where the door post joins the floor/chasis and think that I have cracked or broken the point where the front door posts join the floor/body. Both front doors sag back a little and by picking up the open door I can move the door posts ever so little.

Any ideas on how best to fix this would be much appreciated.

Check the 2 bolts at the bottom of the doorpost to outrigger, also check the support brackets both sides between chassis and the lower angled section of each footwell. There is also the windscreen upper and lower fastenings which help to keep it rigid

Could be some bolts sheared as Steve says - see circled photo, I would also have a good look around the bulkhead fixing bolts has somthing moved and come loose?

The otehr think is, check the seem of the door post, (the bit thats covered up by the door seal) you could have popped a few of the spot welds on the door post that would make it less rigid.
