Re: Renault Scenic 98 chassis

I suspect it will be either an inner or outer sill that is corroded (a particularly common area on early Clios/Meganes/Scenics).All you need to do is to clean up the area and to weld a plate over it,as long as the plate is continuously welded (i.e not spot welded etc) then it will pass.Be aware that the sill is made from pretty thin metal and the corrosion will have weakened it further so you need to use a MIG on a fairly low setting welding in bursts otherwise you will end up with more holes than you started with.

I'd rather push my Alfa than drive a BMW....
