Re: Petrol tank vibration !!
I was advised yesterday by MOT tester to take this bar off, all it seems to do is support the handbrake and ABS cables which can be cable-tied elsewhere, it has nothing to do with the fuel tank. I would ignore it til you come back from your trip.
But have a closer look first, just in case we're talking about different pieces of metal.. It's the only part of my car (2000 Scenic) which is corroded, and looks like it's about to disintegrate anyway!
I had my car MOT tested only a couple of weeks ago & i could see the bar was all corroded but the tester never even mentioned it. I bet it is the same bar. Very thin & it has holes along its length. Bolt at each end i think.As you have described mine is also disintigrated.
