If theres no warning light the ABS will be ok. They don't actually test the system, it only fails if a light is on.

You can cover it with black tape if it is too, and if they can't see it they have to ok it as they are not allowed to alter the car in any way :lol:

Will unpluging the box under the seat kill the light?

I don't think so, as the light indicates a break in the circuit. Unplug that box and you break the circuit! Not 100% sure though.

I know if you pull the fuse out it makes no difference.

Kitch is right. It wont make any difference. The only way to extinguish the light is to pull the instrument binnacle out and unplug the lamp!

It Passed! :D :D :D :D :D Few advisories but its much better underneath than I thought!

Hole in the boot floor is minimal and he missed it anyway lol

The reason why the ABS doesnt work on is that the NSF driveshaft is a NON abs one :shock:

Anyone got one?

Congrats dude! It's always good when a car that you think will fail passes!

Mine always fail, usually on something stupid like a bulb...

I dont think I've got any ABS shafts left but if I have you're welcome to it mate.

How did they tell you that and not fail it? :? Did you persuade the tester to have temporary amnesia? :D

I think if one driveshaft doesn't have the toothed wheel the light will function as if all was well until the car is moved.

Someones took the bulb out anyway! The MOT tester and I share a liking for old car (hes got a MK2 Golf Gti and a Mk3 VR6) plus he knows I cherish my cars and will get the work done (eventually)!
