    Default Failed MOT

    Failed MOT.

    O/'S & N/S front to rear brake pipes (£300 quoted. Lol yeah right, jog on) got a garage to do repair for £80

    Headlamp aim so that beam "kick up" is not visible on the screen. O/S & N/S. I told him I have HIDS in and he said that's why. Is that true because there projector lenses. But on the repair bill it's got headlight alignment needed. So are HIDS still OK in the vectra c on MoT

    Hids in a projector light are not a fail as designed for them.
    Irrelevant of what light source you use if there’s a problem with headlight letting the light out in the correct way the problem will carry on until corrected.

    btw this section says not for car related chat so you might find info already put out in troubleshooting?

    That's exactly what I said when I questioned him. I'll stick halogen ones back in and get the alignment done. Then put hids back in.

    They said one of my number plate bulbs was out, there quote to change was £8.50. ****** £8.50 for 10 second job. There only 20p from carparts4less. I know they have to make money but £8.50 is taking the pee

    what does kick up not visible on the screen mean?

    Is it The bean pattern is to low and not high enough?

    Would lose bulb holders cause this? Or wouldn't it because there projector lenses anyway.

    Kind of makes sense now. No wonder when driving at night I think the beam looks slightly low. Makes sense now. So they just need aligning
