Speaking of p clips and pipes I noticed one of the p clips had come off the petrol pipe on the mini. They are pop riveted on so I assumed rust. Lifted the carpet and found this yellow crusty stuff:
ive heard of galvanic corrosion before between 2 dissimilar metals (steel shell / ali pop rivet) but never like that. The rivet has literally dissolved.
Checked the other 4/5 on the pipe and they are all fine.
I put a dab of pu sealer on all the rivets before I put them in.
Anyone seen it happen before?
