Re: Mot failiure

All should have been picked up,,, take the vehicle back to the garage that serviced it,,, dont take no for an answer

One of the most wonderful things in life is to wake up and enjoy a cuddle with somebody; unless you are in prison.

OK, so if they charge for the work at that garage should I argue that it should have been noticed and so maybe discounts?
Of course all I want is the car back on the road as I have a disabled wife and as far as I knew the car was OK. That's why we have it serviced!

Would say yes to this BUT since maybe 2 months have passed ...how many miles ...many a garage would show you the door ...HOWEVER a garage that values your custom may take a look at the car and then compromise with you regarding repairs either way what have you to lose

It is easier to take it apart than to put it back together

Are the garage aware your wife is disabled and you depend on the car ?? if not let them know and you used them as you hoped you could TRUST them

Re: Mot failiure

Rear brake sticking...likely to be cable
Fronts uneven... sticky calipers or maybe discs
Wobbly handbrake.... likely does need a nut tightening.

As said, go back to garage that serviced and talk to them.
Discounts are always possible.
Had they picked up the issues, would have been chargeable but if down to inspection that should have happened, didn't ??
