Re: Silly things to fail an MOT on

I fitted my own headlamp bulbs on my Megane and they failed me as they were "too high".

I once failed my M.O.T. on my Astra Mk. IV as "brake pipe corroding". It was with a mobile mechanic who charged me for the M.O.T., and then the hour's labour on top of that!

Suffice to say I got my M.O.T. done elsewhere and he showed me my 'corroded' brake pipe, rubbed the surface of it with a wire brush, and shiny new metal appeared underneath: bit of surface rust was all it was!
