The missus Yaris had an advisory on the MOT about rust on rear springs.

I've had a look and it's just surface where the paint has started to flake. Otherwise they seem fine.

They are easy to remove and I am thinking why not just sand down the flakey areas and stick some Hammerite paint on?

If it's just surface then a sand down and paint might be ok.
Of course if the rot goes deeper they might very well snap.... Time to replace more than just springs.

What I'm asking is, how sure are you it's just surface issue?
