We’ve been in two minds whether to replace the sump guard with brand new or repair the damage area that we have discovered on the original.
Having accessed the volume of damage we have come to the conclusion that repairing the original would be much more beneficial in the long run. Not only is this the more cost effective option but it means we can keep the original part and not replace with an after-market option.
As you can see from the images, the damage to the original sump guard was such a small and minor repair that it made sense to work on the original part. As we have the skills to weld this was not too much of a challenge for Asa.
