Corrosion inside engine bay
« on: July 14, 2020, 11:20:29 AM »
Hi folks,

First post here, but not yet an owner!

I've been looking at a lot of 3s over the past couple of weeks, mostly 09 through 11 plates.

One thing I've noticed is that many of them have corrosion visible in the engine bay.

Mostly on top of both strut mounts, and the horizontal area near what I presume is the battery box (rhs when viewed looking at the engine from the front).

I did try searching the forums for "corrosion" or "rust" but I mostly find posts relating to wheels or under body etc.

Is this anything to be worried about ?

Thanks in advance,

MJ
