    Default MOT time

    My car's had it's 2nd MOT today, went through ok at the local Vauxhall dealer.

    Strange that it makes you nervous waiting to hear the outcome

    Only a couple of advisory items, nothing serious:
    slight play in both drag links
    slight wear in upper rear suspension arm

    Priced them up, not as bad as I thought, drag links are about £17 each
    Rear arm is about £65 complete with bushes in

    a bit of a seperate question really.. but the DTi timing chain is only really up for changing if it starts to make noise..a quiet running chain is fine, there is no 'real' interval on them..

    Ian,

    Nice result.. but it was a testament on how you look after your car....well maintained cars needent fear an mot..

    Forget about the timing chain unless it starts to rattle.
    I have just had my second MOT as well and the rear arms also have slight play in them. Passed with an advisory. Apparently this is a common fault with the vectra.

    Rear arms are a weak point Ian, I had them replaced annually on mine, I wonder if you leave them they don't get any worse for a long time, like they settle in and it allows a bit of movement but don't get worse, be interesting to see next yr if you don't replace them yet.
