MOT advisory - might need to get the wire brushes out

This was picked up:
Fluid suspension unit supply pipe corroded but not seriously weakened Anti roll bar pipes (2.4.D.3)

Is this the block and pipes inside the drivers front wheel arch?? Wire brush, Kurust, paint and then grease me thinks to stop it getting worse.

Any thoughts / input appreciated

TIA

Could be the pipes that run through the wheel arch or any of the pipes running under the driver's side cill. Time to jack it up and have a little peek. 2012 SDV6

Assuming you've just has it tested, why not ask the tester while it's still fresh in his memory? I'm sure he or she will be happy to talk to you about it.

MOT was a while back. Been a lazy Censored
Now sorted. It was the pipes that run from wheel arch into union towards engine. Quick rub, bit of kurust, paint then thin smear of grease. Also greased rest of pipes back to rear axle.
Feel smug and satisfied Thumbs Up
PS 3 ton SGS jack and my 3 ton axle stands worked a treat - safety first Thumbs Up GONE - SDV6 HSE MY2012 in Orkney Grey.
