Sunroof has rust spots on the inside....

Hi all
My sunroof has signs that there has been a leak somewhere in the past and got some patches of rust on the inner metal rim on which the glass sits.
The roof doesn't actually leak,but I'm hoping I don't need to change the whole sunroof setup.
Can anyone recommend what I can do to repair the areas of rust?
Is this a common problem on used Brava's?

Thanks
Peter.[V]

Hi,
Check this out for general sunroof info.
http://www.bravo-guide.co.uk/fix-a-bravo.htm#interior

If the rust is interior and easy to get at then:

Scrape off all loose rust, remove any flaky paint and repeat. Sand down to clean metal. Paint on some kurust followed by primer or hammerite. If the metal is badly holed you may need to replace the frame, (if i'm thinking about the same bit of metal?)

Give us a pic.
