As it says in the title, MOT FAILURE!!!

And here goes the list.

Nearside fron (rear bush) suspension arm rubber bush deteriorated resulting in excess movement

Offside rear brake hose excessively deteriorated

offside front brake hose excessively deteriorated

Offside rear brake pip oxcessively corroded

Nearside rear (inner wheel arch) suspension component mounting prescribed area is excessively corroded

Offside rear (inner wheel arch) suspension component mounting prescribed area is excessively corroded

Offside rear subframe mounting prescribed area is excessively corroded

and offside outer (sill area) seat belt anchorage proscribed area is excessively corroded


This is one epic fail on the behalf of my car!!

Anyone know if any of this is 'easy' to do, as my boyfriend knows a fair few bits about cars and can do many things.

Any suggestions will be very appreciated

Its going to need a fair amount of welding to sort out the corroded bits, sounds a lot given the age of car.

The other parts are easy but unless you know someone who does welding i suspect it wont be cheap

Getting use to saying this, I agree with Stef, a lot of the things listed are do-able diy but unless you know a welder then it's not worth doing the other jobs, I'll rephrase that, get a price of the welding work, then price all the other parts up (that your partner can do) plus the retest and way up if the car is worth it.

I noticed you are from Devon, if you're near me by the off chance I can point you in the direction of an excellent MOT standard welder - who will probably beat most if not all garage quotes (in fact, the garages in my area use him for their MOT failures).
