Undertray Mounting Brackets.
Hi, I bought a facelift 55 plate 156 last September & luvvin' it other than for two problems:-
1. First thing I wanted on it was a new cambelt. I've changed them myself on lesser cars, but I got ItalAutos in Chesterfield to do the job.
They couldn't get the undertray mounting bolt out on the point just in front of the wheelarch so they had to break the undertray off.
I now want to repair the undertray (no problem) & refit it.
Both n/s & o/s undertray mounting brackets are badly rusted. On the side where the bolt is rusted in, I know that the bottom of the bracket including the Rivnut will come away before the bolt is able to be undone. The brackets look to be bolted on to a main chassis member.
My question is, is this true & can replacements be bought?
2. A random rust spot on the roof about the size of a shirt button, I'll tackle that when the weather gets warmer.
Thanks in anticipation, Roy.
