From what I can tell from pics is everything that's deteriorating is considered non structural. However there is concern because the purpose of the metal that is rusted is to protect what looks like brake lines and or fuel lines etc. You may want to fabricate new sheet metal to replace it.Hi, longtime lurker first time poster.
Need some help identifying an area of my 08’ FX35 (well wife’s 08’ she had it when I first met her but I take care of her now). Took it to the muffler guy to get loose cat heat shields removed and I noticed a very rusted area by the rear passenger wheel. It was easily crumbling apart as I touched it. There seems to be a sealed box above it.
I know there’s tons of rust and it sucks dealing with Northeast winters and salt. I’m debating getting the undercarriage coated and a new cat back, so I’m trying see if that’s even worth it judging by all the deterioration. Many thanks in advance to anyone that can help!
Just removed the cover from my 2010 FX50 to get to the evaporator cannister vent valve (code P0455) and mine is the same; southern Ontario and lots of salt. It's meant to protect the plastic canister. Mine will crumble with a good hit from road debris...Thank you! Much appreciated! BTW, what do you or anyone else think of this level corrosion?
