hi just got a ford galaxy which failed its mot for 200.00

leaking rear brake caliper
2 spilt cv boots
some play in the ball joint or arm
emissions high
2 front tyres

the rear brake caliper is there a repair kit or a new pattern caliper if so is there a link
cv boots i dont mind doing i might as well change both ball joints and arms at the same time

the emissions is the problem the car had a new oxygen sensor last april,,any idea

Yes
Is a 2.3 with the auxiliary air injection pump?
If so check that the pump is running. It probably is not. If that is the case then there will be water in it, there is no repair.
It needs the auxiliary air injection pipe replaced with a modified pipe from Ford. It will then need the ECU reflashed by a ford dealer. With modified programing. Witch tells the car how to keep the emissions low without the auxiliary air injection pump operating.
