Sure sign rusty as **** inside.
Nothing else really,,, seals around tailgate,,,
Can not fit a child car seat in the front,,

Most main agents, the parts are cheaper than from a motor factor.
Diesel,, with the dpf, container under the back of the car,, on drivers side for the eolys .
This spurts the fluid in to the tank, each time the fuel cap is closed/opened.
Make sure it has fluid in....
Oh,,, will throw this one in,,, if the battery goes flat,,, dont try to jump start it.
It fubar's the ecu ..

These can easily be diagnosed with an elm, and software is freely available for these..
All legal to use......
