Re: Mot failiure

OK so I just got the service log out.
The service was done on the 23/06/16.

My phone won't let me post a picture of the ticked sheet.

So the points for the service that needed to be done was:
Change of oil and brake fluid
Two tyres needed changing as going bald
Cambelt.
We also new that we needed to get the exhaust done prior to inspection.

All of this was done through someone else as we bought the parts.

There was no mention of brakes being a problem. They have ticked the following
Check and record brake pads/shoes
Check and record drums and discs
Remove wheels and check condition and operation of front and rear brakes

Thanks

The check operation is crucial that would have picked up the problems

3. Brake load sensing valve seized
4. Front brake application uneven

A handbrake lever can wobble but still apply sufficient braking effort to the rear brakes. I have seen handbrake levers suddenly become lose due to either its retaining bolts working more lose as time progresses. And also the floor pan crack allowing the lever to become unstable. Both these situations can arise within quite a very short time.

A rear binding brake could be due to a delaminating brake shoe (a common problem in Renaults). Again a common fault which can occur suddenly.

The only sure way of testing a brake load sensing valve is on a proper break testing machine.

Unequal brake application again is not always noticable and can only be fully tested on a suitable test rig.

I ain't siding with the garage in this case only pointing out some possibilities.
