    Will my car pass MOT?

    I have a two issues with my car at the moment but would just like to know if these would mean it fails an MOT test.

    Turbo is chattering due to boost leaking through a split diaphragm, car boosts fine 90% of time and isn't causing any running issues from what i can tell.

    My rear arches are getting a little mullared by my 18's and is causing the inside lip of the arches to be pulled towards the wheel.

    Fingers crossed im getting these sorted before MOT,but if funds get tight i'd just like to know if i could leave one for after MOT if i absolutely had to?

    Thanks

    Both will be fine (Unless the turbo puts the mixture out).

    I think I have a replacement diaphragm in my shed I never used. I was going to put it on ebay once I found it if your interests.
    The truth is always the truth even if you haven't realised it yet...

    If the rear tyres are touching the body anywhere it will fail.

    They touch on bumps and large holes etc. Obviously they arent touching all the time and with only one person in the car it is unlikey to rub if/when tester drives it, but as the arch is a little damaged already will they fail it for that?
