    Question Leaking flexible joint astra 1.6 8 v M.O.T query

    Hi I have an Astra mk4 1.6 8v
    I was wondering if I was to tape up with exhaust bandage the small leak it has on the flexible Joint, would it pass a M.O.T, I will be putting on a replacement soon, but till I can get some cash I wondered if this would pass an M.O.T as the rest of it is ok, it has not been modified at all and is the standard system for the car, and it is running ok at the moment.

    Thanks in advance.

    Derek
    With Luck it will go OK, but in the end we can only hope.

    would all depend on the quality of the repair and whether in the examiners opinion it was suitable and prevented exhaust gases from escaping. use too much wrap and it will also no longer be a flexible joint
