    Hi fellow DIY's
    Just discovered serious rust in both L/R hand battery compartments for my 75 Kombi Camper. Any how to suggestions to replace before installing battery cradles

    Sorry if you have done it already but mine was a bit easier cause I had to change my guards aswell so they went in the way hahha but I'd say grind them out and weld new ones in if your motor and fuel tank is still in car full of sparks

    Didn't see post earlier either.
    Both should bash out with a club hammer without any/ too much damage to outer panel.
    For replacements, the auto craft and genuine are good.
    Cheapest at vwheritage.

    Clean everything well, treat metal and epoxy prime .
    2 pac more durable.
