Unless you're up for major surgery, squirt something on it, cross your fingers, say three Hail Marys and soldier on.

Picture needs to be visible to assess...

Based on Stemos response, I would say bin it.

The thing is, preventative maintenance is just that... it works best before the rot sets in. "Oh darn I just got this advisory what do I do?" simply won't achieve longevity.

The issue with the saloons is that the rubber boot visible in TPs picture moves and rubs off not only the underseal but also the paint, primer and corrosion protection.

You either deal with it before you see it, or you let it get to the state of the picture and drive the car until the rust fall off scrap it.

Had worse on one of our Omegas. Girlfriend came Home and complained that the car was making noise and a big thing was moving up and down in the boot. Shure enough the shock had broken through the top of the tower and was now moving freely in the boot. Paid a breaker around 40£ for a new tower top cut from a wreck. Paid a bodyshop 150£ for cutting out the old and welding in the «new». Car is still running great and i guess that was about two years ago.

The problem facing Terry is that your effective repair involves replacing the inner wing complete with turret rather than simply the turret pressing.

Incidentally your repair is what was suggested as a solution for Terry's earlier failure as it was the top mount reinforcement which had failed. The turret pressing being a few spot welds to remove/replace.

The rust on this example is about two inches below the turret pressing. Hence the suggestion to scrap it ;)

Thanks for the explanation, Doc. This car failed MOT on rusty sills 3 years ago, I had them welded and it has given me 3 more years service so I cannot complain. I shall now use it as an occasional spare car  until I buy something better.

Is it worth cleaning up the rust, wire brush , Kurust and underseal, or should I leave it alone?

I wonder what is going wrong with my dropbox pictures?

In the past I have changed the dl=0 bit of the dropbox address to dl=1 and the picture has displayed.No longer. What am I doing wrong?

Any time spent now is a waste of time.

Did that shock dust cover get any mention on the MoT?
