I just purchased a kit from POR 15 to deal with a rust problem in my brother in law's van. I have yet to use it but I also bought some materials to repair some rust around the jacking tubes on the 240D. I will be using that in the next week or so, after my daughter brings the car home from college.

This stuff supposedly cures to be impervious to rust and water. You may want to give it a try, just paint the stuff over what you have. Good Luck, Jim
