For a while now I have noticed cracks in some welds near the top of the suspension struts.

The Ring trip doesn’t seem to have made these any bigger.

I need to work out what to do about them. They are a factor in the decision as to whether I keep the car.

On both sides, the cracks are set back from the suspension struts, in the area where the bonnet lift thingy is:

Driver's side of engine bay

Close ups of the driver’s side cracks are below.

And on the passenger side.

I’ll post this on some forums and see what people say.
