Got Scenic through MOT BUT 37 advisory items!

Managed to get our Scenic through the MOT.

Failed on ABS light and headlight alignment.

Garage replaced the ABS sensors on the rear but said they had to replace the discs and pads as part of this process. I wasn't too sure of this but I felt personally the rear pads and discs were gubbed anyway.

So for 380 I got the following done

Rear brakes and pads
2 x ABS sensors replaced
diagnostic check
headlights realigned

However, they have listed 37 advisory notes.

Some are plain daft but some are worrying

slight movement in offside upper strut
corroded front struts
nearside inner front draglink end ball joint slight play
track rod end ball joint has slight play
both front suspension arms corroded
both front struts slightly stiff

Unless you are handy with a spanner, methinks ebay beckons...

This job should never be complete - the day I think I've done it all, is the day I resign.
