Hia guys,

Next month I need to run my 3 year old Corsa (1ltr life on a 02 plate) through an MOT test.

The car has got quite a beating I must admit but never really had anything wrong apart from the gearlinkage fuck up (got that fixed on warranty).

To the people who have put their Corsa C through MOT, what did it fail on if anything?

Cheers,

Willay

UPDATE

Passed with flying colours... had a tear in the wall of my tyre so he let me change it for a spare and passed it, ace

tyres and tinted fogs are usual for the C - maybe the number plate if u have changed it.

gear linkage doesnt really come into mot assuming he can drive it onto ramp etc.

Steering rack jack up the car and hold the front wheels at like a quarter to three position and pull/push in and out to rock the wheel. You will know if there is excessive play there.
Note this isnt necessarily in the rack.
