MOT tomorrow!

Hello!!

Got the 214si in for a mot tomorrow..wish her luck! Just need to get the rear washer jet working in the morning. The hose must have got trapped at some point between the boot and the body. So the pipe is snapped. So I'll pop an in-line fitting in tomorrow. Only other concern is rust. All suffice though, no rot, no holes or anything! Apart from that she is as sweet as a nut.

Not get my hopes up yet though!!

Joe

I wouldn't worry about the rear washer mate, they don't check it on an MOT. My one never worked on my 214 and the tester said it's not mandatory.

Make sure you check all your lights, wipers and tyre pressures. Take the scenic route to the test centre to ensure she's nice and warm for the emissions test.

good advice,

there a few things that arn't tested on the MOT, reverse lights, left rear fog and speedo arn't aswell as the rear wiper / washer!! Seems a bit wrong to me,
dont think front fog lamps are either.

Cheers for that mate. All lights good, including the number plate lights. Test centre is near my house, and I'll be going from work so it will be 17 miles, so she will be nice and toasty taken bets at work on if she will pass or not and how many advisories, no one said fail and no one said more thank 4 advisories. So people obveusly think she is tidy. Jacked up on every corner, shook wheels..bairings all good. Did disks and pads a month or two back. Nothing obvious it will fail on. So fingers crossed!!!

It'll be good to see a clean tidy 200, seeing as the MOT inspector did say it was a fine example.

Haha yep. She has the rust bug on the arches. But I might get them sorted. I would do them myself. the previous owner tried a quick fix, and made a bit of a mess and rust coming back through. So I don't want to make that mistake again! Rather leave it to the pro's but bet it would cost me a fortune!
