    Default Vec failed its MOT

    Nothing major though:

    Front windscreen wipers
    Both number plates (not showing BSAU 145d code)
    Front near side drop link
    Rear off side brake binding

    But more than this, the bonnet wouldn't open again, cable seems to have come off under the lid.

    Now last time this happen, I ended up like this:



    This is now the second grill I've damaged to get my bonnet open. It may well be a blessing, I'll see how much an irmscher one is at billing

    yeah very true mate, may have a looksie on ebay later.

    The repairs cost me £30 in parts. Upgraded to flat blade wipers which were most expensive at £20, it was £10 for a new drop link and I got the plates free from my dads work!

    Booked in for a retest on Friday
