If your Omega has foggy windows look for this in driver/passenger side footwell


Cant see from image, but was the black plate holed?  Did you fix the black plate, or just weld over the bulkhead?

My black plate has quite a big hole, but not sure I can get to the edge to weld a plate on, due to where its rusted.  I need to clean it up a bit more to find where the good metal is...   ...or look at other ways of sealing - its only got to last through until probably 6 months.

Wire brush it, West System epoxy and woven glass mat/tape, then spray stone chip onto the outside.

Or a foil tray and sikaflex if you cba to do a reasonable job.

The fibreglass option was considered, and not yet ruled out. Though same issue, as I think usable metal is out of reach/view

Foil and Sikaflex it is then :D

Presumably you have pulled the glovebox? If you need the airbag out of the way, the cover is only held in by a long bolt easily removed once the passenger vent is removed. (the three torx bolts underneath have to be undone to remove the glovebox)  ;)

New metal plate was welded where the rust was. I had the same problem on my 2.5 v6 but on the driver's side. Rust hole was small, but enough to leak under the insulation foam.

On the black plate?

I don't do welding so I can't tell you that. I just know that the welder said he never wanted to see me again after welding that tight unreachable spot.

It forms part of the bulkhead, but would be in the way when the shell is assembled  ;)

It gets fitted and bonded in after painting

I think its all part of the cup that makes the scuttle drain.

Item #1 it is actually the dash substructure that dictates* right or left hand drive...

*the shell also varies as the cabin air intake/engine bay panel is actually part of the shell. That black panel is added during final assembly it's probably what those bolts on the outside of the A pillar (above the upper door hinge) hold in place ;)

Hmmm, that could be more than an hour's work ;D
