    2006 Fiat Ducato..

    Had my new crossmember fitted yesterday, the old one was in a bit of a state!
    Hammerited and waxoyled the new one before fitting, should last longer than the original.
    The bit that isn't visible from underneath was far worse than expected so if yours looks rusty, might be the time to get it sorted.

    I got mine off Ebay for £67.95...

    Check your sump as well, Sump rusting out is a well known fault with Ducattos

    I had both sump and crossmember rust away on my Ducato (1997) and my pockets sure felt it!

    I've had it since early 2008 and Yep, we live on the Norfolk coast so that can't have helped but they all go that way eventually so i'm told.

    Cost wise, didn't think it was too bad, £68 for the part and £45 for Russell my trusted main mobile man to come and fit it for me, so i'm a happy bunny.
