Hello All,

Wonderful forum. I have a 2011 RRSSC.....115K miles on it. Brought it in to get get control arm / bushings done (under extended warranty). Whilst going over the car, they noticed the fuel tank cradle rotted and split. Few questions:

1. Does it need to be repaired urgently?
2. Would you pay the $1K they want for the repair ?
3. Is the fuel tank cradle covered?

Thanks in advance for your thoughts and advice !

It happens most of us in the rust belt. It's an easy repair but you can only buy the part from the dealer or the UK. I'm 400km from a dealer so it was cheaper to have it shipped in.
If the center is corroded and the perimeter is still there you have a little time. If the perimeter is rotted too you should do ASAP!

I did this not too long ago. There is a clever way of replacing it. I believe the cradle/support pan is not very expensive.

Yes I would repair it urgently depending on how back the rotting is. The tank is plastic and the full weight including fuel is supported by it.

I got the support pan from AtlanticBritish. It is not coming up on search, so maybe give them a call. WFN500021G, but keep in mind mine is a 2007.
