corrosion by fuel flap

Recommended Posts

Typical on the KA is corrosion coming through around the fuel flap area.

Rather than have it filled and painted only for it to return...

There use to be a repair kit/procedure by Ford that was pretty effective in stopping it coming back

. Does anyone know of the part number and have the repair instructions for this.

You can buy repair panels. You cut out the rotten section of the old panel, weld in the replacement.

However even with this it will still come back unless you regularly clean out behind the filler neck.

I remove the plastic inner liner every 6 months, give it a good and thorough wash out and waxoyl the whole area. Touch wood ours has zero sign of bubbling or corrosion there.
