    Unhappy MOT Passed, barely!

    I recently took my car for an MOT and it passed, but scraped through. Seems the car has a few minor problems:


    1. Centre Exhaust has part of the system slightly deteriorated
    2. Rear Brake pads wearing thin
    3. Nearside & Offside rear wheel baring has slight play
    4. Steering system has slight free play detected at steering wheel

    #1 Isn't too big of a problem as I was thinking about getting an SRI exhaust, so it's gonna have to be replaced either way.

    #2 Rear brake pads will have to soon be replaced this is gonna be a bit of a sting.

    #3 Just looked these parts up on ebay, and they're going for £60-£80 for one, and i'm gonna have to get 2, any idea if these are doable by myself?

    #4 Haven't a clue what this issue was, could anyone elaborate?

    Thanks.

    Danny.

    You're about 3 miles from me, that'd be pretty handy! Will get them ordered A.S.A.P.

    Last time I bought brake pads was on my Renault Clio, and I think I got all 4, and it come to about £200, but they was from garage so would have been brand new! Are they cheaper for Veccy's or sth?
