How pointless was that then. Car failed on 4 things.. sidelight bulbs the wrong colour.. erm.. they were bought from halfrauds therefore legal so not sure about that 1.
Headlight aiming was out meh!
Exhaust touching brake something or other valve.
Ok then.. right bulbs.. why not just replace the things... exhaust, the exhaust has not changed for the last 3 years so why only fail now ??
Headlight angle always fails but is usually adjusted at the mot as it takes about.. oh.. 7 seconds.
And now here's the real p**s take:
When i booked the MOT i told them that the emissions would fail because of a lambda sensor. The ecu had picked up a fault because i had run the engine without the sensor in place. As it happens, the sensor has been put in place now but the ECU is ignoring it because it needs resetting to tell it a new 1 is there. Now that's the reason it's failed emissions.
When i booked the MOT they said they could sort this out before MOTing the car... surprise, the woman who said that was not there today and the bloke doing the MOT said there was no time to do it... so what was the point in them doing the MOT ?? oh yeah.. to rip me off of £40 as i knew it was going to fail anyway.
Remind me not to use Hilsea MOT centre again... p.s. complaint going in about them as they failed legal bulbs and the exhaust got through the MOT at the same place 2 years ago with the exhaust as an advisory.
