Ford Ka

Hi can some one help me, my wife has a ford ka and it rusting in the same place as most ka's . I have been told by our local panel beater to remove the inside panel by the fuel tank, and repair from the inside out as it's a common fault and to seal the area with car wax . the question is how do I take the panel off without breaking it. Any help would be great

Re: Ford KA

Here is some advice from another site , and an alternative quick repair from E-bay .

" Hi ya, i work in a bodyshop, its common. If having it repaired, make sure the filler cap assembly is removed. its quite easy, take off the fuel filler cap & you will see a phillips screw just of top centre, unscrew it & then rotate the complete black plastic assembly (with the fuel filler flap attached) anti clock wise & it will come off the car, this way you dont have to remove the fuel tank. I tend to use a die grinder to grind out rust/ corrosion then treat with Q-rust. skim it up with top stop. flat & then 2k prime. Prep & paint the quarter panel out. I always remove the rear quarter window too as its only 4 screws & it makes a much neater job.

I always smear grease on the apature before refitting so as to repel any water spray coming up from the N/S/R wheel. "


Moved post to correct section .
