I've owned three or four cars which have suffered significant battery tray damage, my 190e no longer has a tray to speak of. By the time I bought it, the tray had turned to rusty bits which I actually vacumed out. I painted the remains and the whole area the battery sits in with Hammerite and will try and find a replacement.

Why is'nt the battery area treated with zinc or a strong plastic lining?

Mike.
