Re: 03 Scenic II 1.6 MOT Failure

Track rod ends are easy to do and need no tools more special then a hammer and spanner.
But car will need tracking afterwards if doing yourself.

Exhausts.... I'd bang it into one of the exhaust centers for a look and quote. Chances are with a support gone, joints are leaking but could have cracked a pipe.

Restrictive movement on caliper...not a clue and I'm not a novice with brakes.
Possibly means that brakes are siezing on or that slide pins aren't sliding.
Could be handbrake lever on the caliper isn't returning.
Needs a coating of looking at and may just be clean and lube or could be new caliper
Currently in Dancingdad's garage:
Qashqai 1.6 spark driven, Kia Sedona 2.9 TDI, Scenic II 15DCi 2004 (SORN) not quite RIP.
