Exclamation A crack in my rear fender

Hi Guys,

See the pictures.... I did not have any accident or noticed any "bump" but there is a crack in the rear fender sheet metal... under the LEFT RAIL COVER.

anybody ever seen anything like this ???

I cannot think of any other way then welding or "hard soldering" a small plate behind the crack?? Any other idea how to repair without welding, any idea is welcome.... I will show this also to the dealer.... see if any guarantee for this ??

I'd reckon its a warranty issue, get em to replace it if you can.
Theres a way of. Sorta fixing it but itll be visible unless professionally Welded and refinished.
A replacement in the correct colour is far better.
Could Sikaflex a bracing piece behind and clamp in place with blocks of wood either side but close inspection will reveal the crack.
Not good mate, not good at all.

You can try this http://alvinproducts.com/, some two part metal epoxy the kind in a tube that you knead together, or jb weld if any of that is available to you.

Thanks mate, forgot to mention,

Already send the pictures to Vic Indonesia..... but I will ask if i am allowed to:::::

DRILL A 3 MM HOLE to stop further cracking...... and maybe rivet an stainless or aluminium plate on the back so you will only see the 4 rivets and a crack..... but it will not crack further

Good Idea; there is "plastic steal" here in Indonesia, and could "glue" an aluminium sheet on the back....

Biggest problem you will have will be the vibration many of they basic "superglues" don't fair well under heavy vibration. You could also use some 3m vhb tape with a piece of metal on the backside to help stiffen it. As with any type of repair prep is everything.

Yea that's the stuff. They have several types just make sure you get one for metal I can't remember the number now. The stuff comes in a roll but isn't cheap when you only need a small chunk. Maybe you can see if they can get you a sample. I would still drill a hole at the top to keep the crack from spreading. Auto parts store carry it here or try an auto body place they use it for trims and such, probably will sell you a small piece.

DONT go drilling holes and rivetting, use SIKAFLEX, Its used to glue aeroplanes buses and trucks together.
Anything else is not good enough...SIKAFLEX is the stuff to use
