Re: Difference between MOT and minor service

Alternatively, get the oil and filter change at National tyres for the 26 and get the free 25 check at Renault main dealer who gives a detailed checklist of the work carried out:

Fluid levels:
Engine oil
Brake fluid
Power steering circuit
Front & rear screen washer

Condition & seal of front/rear shock absorbers
Tyre wear/condition
Tyre pressures
Exhausts (leaks, mounting)
Condition of brake system
Leaks in brake system (external)
Condition of drive shaft bellows

Signals visibility:
Side lights, number plate
Direction indicators, hazard warning lights
Dipped/main beam headlights
Reversing lights, stop lights
Front & rear fog lights

Correct operation:
Condition and mounting of bumpers
Condition of windscreen
Condition of lights
Rear view mirrors
Operation of doors and windows
Wiper blade wear and operation of front/rear wash/wipe
Check service history and future requirements

This is the main dealer Motrio service:

Oil Change
Filter Change
Air conditioning / heating check
Leak check in cooling system
Check fuel system
Check mirrors and windscreen for damage
Check for body damage
Check for leaks in braking system
Check and adjust tyre pressure and sensors
Check battery and plugs
Check washers and wipers
Check condition of brake system
Check exhaust system
Check drive belts (excl. timing belt)
Check operation & condition of seatbelts
Check tyre tread and depth
Check all lights and signals
Check all fluid levels
Check bonnet catch
Diagnostic check of all onboard computers.

There is hardly any difference between the two? Ok, the Motrio service includes a diagnostic check but is this a plug in check or a dashboard check & reset of the service lights?
