Attached a picture of the underside of my 2002 wrx, this picture is near the front right wheel and I am not sure what the rusted piece does for a living. Since it crumbles to the touch I figured it normally does not bear weight. None of my mechanics have ever mentioned it so I am curious if anyone knows what it is? Or better yet what I could look for as far as the part and spend some time getting it fixed.


Thanks for the input guys! Long time forum reader first time poster here.

That would be your subframe. That is a pretty important structural component of your car. However, I would presume that it's not all that uncommon of an area to rust on these cars, especially if the vehicle seen numerous winters unmaintained and cleaned in a rust-belt state.

Thanks for the reply! Yeah being here in minnesota is rather brutal on the car. I know it got stored in the garage all the time but it looks like a few spots on the underside got rather roughed up. Only the subframe seems to have taken the brunt of the winters and salt fun. Since I just got done with headlights, tail lights, rims, really hope the subframe can be fixed.
