BB1 Scrapyard Dog - MOT

Post by vanzep » Tue Jan 12, 2021 5:22 pm

Below zero today and sad news that the BB1 failed its mot on quite a few items. The tester was spot on and i was able to walk round/under the car and see what needs done. Im a bit surprised at what needs done as it is only 4000 miles or so since the last MOT.
Here is a list of work that needs done for the MOT:
Handbrake just failed 1490 need to get it up to 1600
o/s front rack rod end link
n/s front cv boot split
n/s rear drop link end

Other stuff:
n/s rear trailing arm bushing deteriorated
lower dsp unit not working
small tear in pass door seal (inner)
camber out 1 deg due to bolt seized in rear lca
steering wheel slightly out/misaligned
brake pipes hard lines in wheel well need cleaned&painted (where plastic cover ends)
pass wing mirror not fully folding in/out
idle too high - need to reset/lower it before MOT retest

I have decided to put the car off the road until i can get round to fixing it up.
I do have a lot of nice parts to fit so at least when i get it back on the road it will be in fine fettle. :)
In the meantime im still mobile and running around in a ford focus :?
