So I bought another 156, a SW 1.9jtdm Veloce on a 55 plate. Nice car, supposed low mileage. Goes well. Suspension clonks, par for the course so far.
I was having a good look around it yesterday and I noticed that the metal work that drops down behind the intercooler and/or oilcooler (depending on which side of the car you look at) is rotting on both sides. Without taking the bumper off it looks to me as if this is a bolt on part. Its also supports the trailing edge of the bumper where it meets the front wheelarch liners.
Does anyone know if this part is available and replaceable without the need for welding?
