Re: MOT Failure "Again!!!"

the inner track rod arms have ball joints on them that get worn and start to rattle.
they are about 15-20 each, they usually have a copper washer between the inner socket and the rack. they can become loose. they are one of the most common faults with reno's that the dealerships change.

the steering lock has probably got a problem with the lower linkage having slipped down on the steering rack spindle.
loosen the rack retaining bolt and push the lower linkage back into the base of the steering column, it should push up against the plastic bush in the bottom of the rack, once there the lock should work ok then.

they might have only switched the wipers to the first setting (im assuming you have auto rain activated wipers.) ????
you might have to go back and ask them what setting they used ??? if its working ok on all settings.
