Well, I used to work in an out-of-warranty claims department for Ford, and unless the block exemption rules have changed over the last couple of years, the way I read it is, the manufacturer covers the first period of the warranty, and the remainder is conditional upon the service schedule being adhered to.
What are you being quoted for the spring (plus fitting) by the mot establishment? I believe its recommended that they are replaced as pairs.
This job should never be complete - the day I think I've done it all, is the day I resign.
Currently in VelSatisfied's garage:
