Hi,

I recently bought what I thought was a good condition 1.8 TD 75 Escort Van but when I took it for a service this was found:

I dont really want to give up on the van as the rest of it seems in great condition and is pretty low millage and would like to try and either rebuild the chassis section or cut it out and replace it with new chassis legs. I have seen these advertised for earlier escorts and other vehicles but can't seem to see any for the Mk6 Escort Van.

Can anyone help me as to where to get some parts from or how to go about rebuiding the current chassis? I am willing to put the time and effort in myself but just need to source parts or materials.

Thanks,

Mark.
