The Discovery is ready to remove the body work to make it easier to get at the Inner Wing, Battery Carrier & Headlight Unit. Here you can have a better assessment at the extent of the rust. Before removing any parts take plenty of datum measurements so that the new parts fit without any problems. Drill out the spot welds, remove bolts and cut to make to remove. Then remove the corroded parts or in this instance the whole lot as now it is a MOT failure for any rot within 300mm of a body mount. 7 8 9
