Re: Sills MOT test
Sounds like your talking about the sill joint,this is subject to the same criteria that Igg-Hiss goes into.If it's within 30cm of a suspension mounting,seatbelt mounting or a seat mounting (if the seatbelt is mounted to the seat) and it is deemed to be excessively corroded then it will fail.Any member/support panelling within 30cm of these mountings becomes the 'prescribed area' that the rules cover.There are also criteria that any corrosion that effects braking and steering can be failed,but for this the area has to be absolutely fubar'd!.
I'd rather push my Alfa than drive a BMW....
