Hi

Getting my car back from MOT and service tomorrow (main dealer) - having to wait for it to be completed, however they gave me the service report.
Reading through it, it says on the Ford healthcheck form that the o/s/r rear chasis rail is distorted.

I have searched google etc and do not know what this is. will be chasing with dealer tomorrow.
It passed MOT btw.

cheers. TB

distorted means the cars been bottomed out or had a shunt on the rear and isnt a good sign could be a big bill involved as it requires a lot of cutting and welding this pic shows the chassis rail marked in yellow

cheers, well i have had car for 2 years and it has not had a knock since I have owned it.
bought from main dealer with RAC inspection certificate dated 1 month prior to me buying car.

will ask dealership to show me and will take my camera with me tomorrow

if it was too bad, it would not have passed the MOT??

There are no tell tale signs inside the boot of an accident.

may be corrosion due to rust but definately needs sorted before it gets too bad
