Re: 1.6 Cabrio

I would recommend checking the floor on either side just forward of the rear of the door opening. There are what appear to be reinforcing plates which can trap dirt where they join the floor. If there is any sign of corrosion, remove the front seats and carpet and look from above, it will look worse from here, but also be easier to repair from above. On mine one side was worse than the other and I had to cut out a small section of floorpan which gave me access to the top of the reinforcing plate to remove rust, treat, paint with weld-though primer, then weld in a small repair section to the floor. After paint it was given a good coat of waxoil underneath.
