Wassereinbruch und heftig verrostetes Rolllager.
Ist hier das Plastiklager zerbrochen ?
Oder der Staubschutzgummi abgerutscht ?
Übrigens ein Teil aus dem Tieferlegungskit
Water ingress and heavy rust at Tom's MGF
(lowering knuckles)
Did the plastic break, or did the gaiter slip off ?
Staubschutz vom Rollenlagerfuss abgerutscht *Rostgefahr*

Dust cover slipped off from the knuckle joint.
Water ingress will result in wear !!

Die richtige Befestigung des oberen grünen Federringes unbedingt öfter überprüfen.
Bei defektem Rolllagerfuss kann dieser gegen einen gleichlangen Bolzen ersetzt werden. (z.B. von Mike Satur erhältlich für tiefergelegte MGF)
Dann jedoch besser die Teile auf beiden Seiten wechseln, da die Bolzenlänge unterschiedlich sein kann.
Check the right fitment of the upper green coloured spring ring frequently.
If the rod got damaged already, you can try sourcing short knuckle joints (rods only) at Mike Satur but you should replace both, the near side and off side at once, cause the joint length could be different.

Staubschutz vom Rollenlagerfuss abgerutscht *Rostgefahr*.
Der Ring muss unbedingt wieder den Staubschutz unten fixieren.
Die Wiedermontage geht nur bei abgelassener Hydragas- Flüssigkeit. (Foto von meinem MGF)

Dust cover slipped off from the knuckle joint.
Water ingress will result in wear !!
Re-installing the green coloured ring will work only when the suspension gets drained.

  Err, zu spät. das kommt davon, wenn man Fehler nicht gleich beseitigt :( Err ...to late. The Plastic is already broken. This happens if you're to lazy to repair failures asap :(
