Rust on rear suspension arms

Postby schmidt » Wed May 09, 2018 2:15 pm

Been fixing a few things on the car pre-MOT.

Have lots of rust under the car, mainly surface rust I think though. As far as I know suspension seems to be working okay, but is this level of rust on the rear arms likely to fail the MOT?

Not likely unless there is severe rust not shown in pics. Worth cleaning and painting it though before it gets serious.

Ours looked like that .. one of the downsides of it living in Dundee for many years before we bought it .. never had an issue with MOT as it's surface rust.

Thanks guys - yeah I think I'll take the wire brush to it pre-MOT and try Hammerite Underbody Seal if anyone has experience of that?

Messy stuff, but will do the job.
If you're up for it, It is quite easy to drop the whole subframe out for easy access to the nooks & crannies
