Re: MOT failures, help needed please
Removing the air-bag bulb won't help as the test includes watching the light come on and then go out as it ought to.
The efficiency pass rate for a handbrake is less than the footbrake so it still possible there is something amiss.
Thye rear self-adjusters are known to seize so it may be they need to be manually adjusted - this involves removing the drums.
Also if one rear cylinder is newer than the other then ther's bouind to be an imbalance - it is recommended to renew brakes parts in axle sets.
