Now you can see a lot more detail. You’re not allowed to dismantle the car for an MOT test. So this isn’t part of the MOT test but we can’t see enough with—might be giving the—so come and have a look. Suspension arms, anti roll bar and if it’s clearly visible that an anti roll bar is supposed to be there, then we will fail if you take it off. Rubber has got to be in good condition, so the paint is breaking off of that but that’s an inch thick solid bar so it’s not going to be a fail because it doesn’t affect the performance of it.
Rubber boots, drive shaft boots there, got to be in one piece, spin the wheel around. Through the gap you can see how much brake pads you’ve got left and the condition of the brake disc. You going to have to pick which is on the top, don’t have any cracks and—what else would fail? Yeah rust, wear and cracks and the keywords are SCO for an MOT in the car test, security, condition and operation.
All right so you have your assistant inside the car, you press the brakes, check for bulging and damage to your brake hoses and it must not touch the suspension either. —check for the wheel bearing. These rubber boots on the steering arm, steering arm has got to be straight unless they’re designed to be bent going around the corner, a piece of chassis or whatever. Your rubber boot, if that’s split on either this or the bottom ball joint, and it is an advisory, not fail unless the joint is worn. Worn joint there, worn joint there, failed. And we’ll go down here, we’re go around the other side in a minute and—. Another test that you can do at home is if you lift the car off the ground, there’s plenty of forage you can go and to find out the correct jacking points for the test on your car is—with the wheel, put the leaf bar under it, wheel off the ground about an inch or two and you should lift it up, up and down while you got your head underneath and that should demonstrate any movement. You’re not allowed to use bars on the MOT test to apply pressure to show movement.
Okay, nuts and bolts, locking taps, locking nuts, anything that’s supposed to be there must need to be there for the test. Any rivet that come undone or bolts are loose, it will fail because obviously it becomes unbalanced when you drive. Rubber boots on the suspension arms, if you want to, at home, you can get the bar in there and getting the jig off when you see that. I’ll put pressure on that, it’s no more than a millimeter, it’s not moving. That’s because that joint is rubber. Some joints are allowed movement, interpretation.
Okay so no leaky shocks, absolutely dry, all good. This is in race condition, showing some signs of wear but nothing that’s failable. So that wheel can go back on and well I’ll change position and we’ll come back in a second.
