24/7/08 - MOT Failure
So it never rains but it pours!
Â Having rebuilt the entire rear end (trailing arm bushes) and replaced the front shock absorber rubbers I put it in for an MOT.
The failure list was extensive:
Front sidelight bulb - it was working when I tested it
Front nearside kingpin bearing - fair cop it was worse than I thought
Front offside Kingpin bearing - again worse than I thought
Front nearside wheel bearing - looked fine to me but now its in bits I can hear the noiseÂ
Brake imbalance at the rear - going to be hard to find as the brakes are all new.
But strangest of all - Roll Cage!
Having passed the MOT in the last few years the Roll Cage managed to fail on "obscuring Area A on the windscreen"
I dont know quite what has provoked this but apparently a number of cages have failed around the UK recently.
Also got a warning notice about the front winch and recovery points being dangerous (this is not a fail - just warning that its not pedestrian friendly)
Also a warning about marginal imbalance in the front brakes :(
So no off-roading for me - back to the workshop
