    Default MOT tomorrow

    I know 1 of my reverse lights has blown, do i need to replace it because i know a lot of cars only have 1 reverse light and 1 brake light. Other than that all other lights are ok.

    There is that rattling from the rear, but you can only hear it when driving and as they dont drive on MOT how will they know it exists, whether it is the ARB or whatever else.

    Anyhow i am expecting a fail tbh, could be on anything i wouldn't know

    Reverse lights aren't part of the MOT test.

    I think you meant fog light, not brake light.

    Why not take the spare bulb from the non working fog light on the passenger side and use that for the reverse light?

    Unless you've wired up the passenger side fog light or already used the bulb for one of the other lights.

    1 rear fog light works. The same side as the non working reverse light is the side that the fog does not. BUT 1 fog is working at the rear.

    Nope all my lights work even if thats just 1 reverse and 1 fog. Springs ae brand new, Emmisions should be fine, Seat belts are fine, number plates perfect. I know there is much more but it should be ok.

    Just to be clear. The fog light that works, is it the one on the off side/drivers side. Or is it the nearside/passenger side fog that works?

    The MOT requires the off side fog to be working. If its your other one that is working, you'll fail.
