Re: 98 Espace Lower Front Crossmember

Hi neil
sorry to hear about your worm problems

yes they are all the same across each model, so as long as you can source another from a scrapper thats in good nick you should be ok.
might help if you can give it a good rub down and chuck on a load of that anti-rust treatment stuff that make rusty bits go purple, then slap a few coats of hammerite paint on there then it should last many years without problem.
main issues is that antifreeze tends to eat regular paintwork and corrode it(if the road salt doesnt first)
if you do spill any anti-freeze on it chuck a bucket of soapy water over it to flush it away.

dont forget to fully support the radiator and aircon before you remove the old one, as they rest entirely on it, top fittings are only insecure guide clips, so bottom crossmember takes all the weight!

Spare parts available for 2001 Scenic 1.9Dci, 97 Lag1, 02 Lag2.
