Thumbs up Re: Fix for water in footwell/Rust at brake servo

Thanks Graham. The guide is excellent. I had exactly the same rust pattern as you. I my case, 3 of the clip/lugs on the hatch panel had broken allowing the water to run onto the bulkhead supprting the master cylinder. I drilled these out and used nuts and bolts instead. The seal looked ok, but I covered it in silcone to give it a fighting chance. I'll periodically douse the rusted area with waxoyl for as long as I keep the car.

Thanks Graham. I had the same rust problem caused by broken clips on the hatch panel. I will regularly treat it with waxoyl from now on.

I have the same issue with my Fiat Punto.

Just to confirm, would normal Silicon work? The kind you get for bathrooms and tiling?

I don't see why not as it's waterproof.
