Re: Sanding brake discs
Could the MOT tester have been referring to the rustly lip you get around the circumference of old discs, instead of the actual braking surface?
He may have been, but I remember him saying that braking power is affected (despite the car passing the brake performance test...)
As far as I know, a rusty disc lip is not a fail here.
I'm going to look at it with the mechanic who is sorting out the car and fortunately I get a free retest with the original MOT tester. If he still complains then I will just have to go somewhere else
