MOT tomorrow !!!!!!

Post by Mothman »

Fingers crossed, the old girl goes up for her test tomorrow.
The only thing i can see that could be a problem is the nearside armoured front brake pipe, the rubber cover has perished in a small area. No leaks but i wonder if this will be a fail? Only done 3k since the last one which cost me the princely sum of £2.50 in parts to get through.
Feels like ime sending a member of the family to hospital for an op, gets worse every year she gets older.

Any cracks or blisters on a front brake hose should be an immediate fail, sorry but thats how it is.

What I can't understand is, if you know there's a likely fail point, why not fix it before it goes in :? Save your own and the testers time.

Yes, i think you are right bud,

I have a spare on the scrapper so ile be doing it shortly.

Had a bit of a price increase on the parts needed too ime afraid, had to stretch to £2.60 this year. A few advisories too but nothing drastic.
Well pleased. Not bad for a years motoring.
