We’ll best laid plans for an MOT Saturday morning went out the window when the garage said all slots were taken. But they had some today late on.
So I took the offer of a 4:15 slot, after a quick check of all the lights and other critical bits set off for the test station.
On the way we stopped briefly as the engine started running a bit warm, letting it cool we then got to the test.
Left the car for a good while while looking at the freshly galvanised rock sliders that returned today, more about those over the weekend as they are fitted.
Upon our return to the test centre we were greeted with smiles and good news. The car had passed with 2 advisories, one for an oil leek we think is coming from the rocker cover. The second is a pas fluid leak coming from the top of the box where our new pipe is bolted in.
So now the car is passed we will look to solve the little issues noticed on the road and tax the car from Thursday 1st May.
Wow congratulations on the MOT, I seem to have missed this post the other day.
Thanks, it was almost a surprise to me that it had passed, the reason we put it in was if there were failures we could resolve them and retest before looking to tax for 1st May. but passed so contacted DVLA and ordered the tax, so its now back on the road.
I will be doing a few more articles over the next couple of days after picking up a couple of new parts today to sort the issues I have experienced.
