Do you have a hole in the floor ????????


I'm not taking the Pee, but mk4 escorts/orions do suffer from rusty floors, and one of the main places is the rear floor where your heels are when your sat in the back seat, where the floor raises up to become part of the seat they rust there underneath..


Should be picked up on MOT, so if you dont have mot yet get you welding gear out!!!
