How right you are there!!!

3 weeks after having my Ex Lag 1 MOT tested, I could hear a knocking noise from the rear end, there was me expecting the rear box to be on the swings. Yeah right.

When I went down below the rear box was fine, one of the two bl00dy hangers holding the diesel tank had rotted right through, & to say the least the tank was swinging.

Easy job to do though, & even at Renault price the strap only cost 15 quid, albeit it would probably only been 7 or 8 had it have been obtainable elsewhere.

Talk about what can be missed during an MOT
