More confused now. There was an advisory on last years MOT for the CV boot but can't say if it was split or just tatty.

May have to go the safe route and just replace it.

Mine passed yesterday with no advisories! :) should expect it to really considering it's done about 2500 miles since the last MOT...

Low miles!

Mine went in this morning and tbh was expecting advisories seeing it is nearly 10 years old and does get used!

I've done a shade under 9k miles since last years and all they picked up was tyres being iffy and that is due to the camber as lowered so was expecting that really. Not bad considering the tyres are nearly 3 years old and have covered around 26k miles.

Also mentioned but not advised was leaking O/S inner cv boot, not worried as replacing these when dropping the gearbox. N/S handbrake slightly under par.

So all's good for another year and has never failed an MOT since new.

Also blows holes in the de-cat MOT regs, 3/4 years since de-cat and MIL kit and still passes with flying colours and the new visual check ;)

Have dropped mine off at the testers this morning. Not due until 15:30 but have already got fingers crossed!

peterzs 13-04-12 10:18 AM

cross mine us well.

Thanks Peter, must have worked as have just had a call to say it's passed. Panicked slightly when the phone rang 10 minutes after it was booked in but guess they started it early.

One advisory on the nearside CV boot but otherwise a clean bill of health. Think that deserves a couple of pints tonight and a good clean for the car over the weekend!

Not bad going, another year of hassle free motoring.

peterzs 13-04-12 05:00 PM

Sounds good, they do have a good history of getting through.

Captain Peanut 13-04-12 05:05 PM

Interestingly, the garage have advised that the cam belt an tracking should be done soon. His face was a picture when I told him the belts were 12 months old an then showed him the receipt for them doing the tracking last month!
