    Mot pass!!!

    well she did it again just a few little bit need new tyres thet close to legal limit and excess play on the o/s front suspension arm in a ball joint? had the book out and looks kinda easy for someone with a little knowledge any ideas guys? Also they did try and fail it on my 3rd brake light being (got the ZAFIRA sticker on it) over 50% but after a chat they advised me on it,so another bus out on the road agin well chuffed

    I too have the middle brake light cover and have never been pulled up at mot time

    As mentioned above you will be best getting a new wishbone. You can get a ball joint seperate but need to grind rivits off to fit it and it's easier just swapping the wishbone imo.
