    Default Will it fail an M.O.T ?

    after getting the two rear tyres replaced at an asian garage called M+M tyres and exhausts in middlesbrough, they snapped one of the bolts so it is stuck into the disc , they said they would remove it , but after i saw there total incompadence i thought id stay well clear ! any how will my moter fail its M.O.t as i only have four bolts instead of five in one of the rear wheels ? or will a new disc be required before the M.O.T thanks

    If you take it to someone like quickfit they should be able to remove the bolt. This is slightly different but i had locking bolts that rounded off a few years ago & they drilled them out. It's possible to do it so you should'nt need to replace the disc as for the m.o.t not sure about that

    yep..you shouldn't need a new hub flange ( which on the vectra's means a new wheel bearing ).. either do as Rory suggests, or when you drill it, remove the core with a small drill ( 5mm) then go in with an 8mm..it'll either do 1 of 2 things..remove enough material to 'break' the rust seal on the threads and spin it in behind the disc.. or remove enough material to let you fold the remainder of the old bolt in on itself and push it out with a pin punch..

    when you said it has 'gone wrong'.. what have you done to it??

    and yes, if the MOT tester spots you have a wheelbolt missing, it's a failure

    don't let him, or her, see it then. Cover it with something so to obscure it.

    Its quite common in british 'domestic' culture to refer to a group of people by their ethnic origin. Its been going on for years.

    Some britains continue to refer to 'the irish', 'the scottish', 'the welsh' & 'the ozzies' as examples. They also get hacked off, but dont make a deal of it and we all live happily as they have given up trying to 'take over'

    Britains also de-individualise their close family as well... 'the Wife', 'the Mother-in-Law' etc etc...

    I have a lot of respect for Asians, especially their intelligence and business acumen. I've noticed that inner cities are now being dominated by Asians, turning cheap houses into valuable assetts, Asians are targetting the high paid intellectial jobs and cashing in on british wealth (Legal Sector, Healthcare, Hospitality) - Doctors, Solicitors, Lawers, Dentists, Corner Shops, Restraunts, Taxis, cash & carrys and are now spreading out to rural areas with their wealth.

    We could learn a hell of a lot from Asian culture. Education is the key and some british are too happy to sit on their ar$e and claim government handouts or just moan at how hard it all is....

    But hey... it'll all turn out for the good.
