I had a look at a car last night.
It had rust in the main cross member at the passenger side footwells.
Can this cross member be repaired/replaced

i would say the one that is most likeley to sting you will be the heater box cant see it till you pull it out then you will see the damage the rest like the other guys said also a comon one that you can only see when the front guards are of is a part of the body behind the guard near where the door bolts on this can rust out to but easly repaired...also if it has all the crome triming can rust under that as well specialy check back window if its got crome around it...
