Roof rust
#1
    Seen a clean 306 for sale but the roof is beginning to rust. How much roughly should it cost to get repaired and painted? I dont think it looks too bad but i dont know if it will be a big job or not. Thats the photo of the worse side its the same on the other side of the sun roof

If its that bad on the outside I dread to think what it's like inside!

That's pretty fcuked dude, don't buy it to fix, buy to run into the ground.

As said that's from the inside so would say its pretty knackered, roof skins are only thin, I'm not a bodywork guy though so others may know better Smile

I'd be checking the rear arch, bulkhead and chassis rails as well, I doubt it's as clean as you think without digging further. Smile

What causes the roof on a 306 to rust out?
This post is an artistic work of fiction and falsehood. Only a fool would take anything posted above as fact.

peugeot doing something very daft 23 years ago.

spot welding the sunroof frame to the roof skin.

citroen did it the right way, plastic frame bolted to captive inserts at the top of the pillars.

blocked sunroof drains dont help.
