Rust on body above silencer.

Post by Jet »

Just above the rear silencer LHS there is a 4" circle, anyone know what that section of the body is for and why it might have rust forming?

Thanks

Hi JB,

Hope you are keeping safe.
Here is the part number for the part 41128200462

If you check on realoem it was fitted to a large range of vehicles. 1974-2010

They are listed as being £9.22

I have read somewhere that it a drain hole bung to allow electroplating/ Liquid to exit during the dipping process.
Not sure it that’s true..


Best wishes

Ivor

Good man Ivor,

obscured by boot carpet and the exhaust, not easy to spot but worth noting if either are ever taken out for whatever reason.

Thanks again
JB
