Did the car failed mot or how did you find the rear subframe is bad?

Not having a 171, this is just a curiosity question. Do they also replace required bushings and any other worn parts associated with the subframe F.O.C.?
AND out of my curiosity, what does F.O.C. mean?

I was wondering this when I replaced mine.
The subframe comes complete with all necessary bushes ,but not sure if they would use new bolts for subframe or use your old ones?

All the bolts are new and the car must be a few kilos heavier because of all the waxoil that's been sprayed under the subframe and on it also I've been told that some slk owners in the UK have had the subframe replaced even after it's been wielded just need to find a friendly dealership

Hi everyone,

I'm still considering an SLK. Is rust on the rear subframe a common problem area? Where do they normally go and are some model years worse than others?

Assuming that you cannot find such a helpful dealer as Brava 91, is it an expensive job to replace and / or a potential car killer?

Thanks,
LeeP
