I have a 2000 accord that I recently purchased and I've notice that within the plastic guide track that runs the length of the passenger compartment, the tubing exhibits a "white-ish" corrosion.

I need this car to last and was wondering if there is a common way to halt or slow this corrosion - beside getting the heck out of Cleveland's winters! :yes:

the only thing i can think of is a light coat of oil or grease.. the only problem with that if it may collect road debris and chafe the line if it is inside the little white clip. but it certainly will halt oxidation.

You could try rubberized undercoating. Once that material dries, it does not collect grit like grease product would.

If the lines are already rotten there is not much you can do. When you attempt to remove the black plastic chase, usually something else breaks too, fuel or brakeline. I had a rotten brakeline and ended up replacing both fuel and brakelines.

Here in Western NY like CLE, rust never sleeps!
