    Zafira Failed MOT :(

    on the brakes. Had 49% balance on the front. Max is 25%! He said it could have been a brake hose broke so its not returnin the fluid back and fourth through the caliper. Does this sound right or could it be something else? I wanna get it fixed asap! Other than that, the car was fine

    Bummer.
    At least if it is a brake hose, it will be an easy and cheap fix.
    if you are planning on fixing it yourself, won't you have to pay for a re-test? . If so, it may be cheaper to let the garage that did the MOT test to fix it, you won't get a re-test fee then.

    I'v got a friend looking at it tomorrow, and possibly repairing it next weekend. Car feels fine at the moment so not that worried. I can take it back within 14 days for a free re run!

    I'm doing the calipers sunday also so i'm going to have a play then and take the caliper off and have a look myself when i spray them! and spray a whole can of break cleaner in there! LOL, fingers crossed!
