    Yep, hopefully you see in this photo. Might be worth you taking yours to a MB dealer, as they have agreed to replace the whole panel for free. This was because the issue is from beneath and not due to external damage/lack of care.

    I can't believe it, my 1987 W124 has the same rust spot in the same place! (Or I can't believe that I have read through almost 40 pages of the rust thread)

    I have looked at 10 yr olds with rust
    starting to show under bonnet , edge of guards etc. Yet I have saw 15 yr olds same model and could not find a spot of rust.
