We have an old M reg escord 1.8 TD. Does anyone have any idea of what this means, what needs replacing or repairing?

This will be your lower arm bushes, best to buy 2 non gen arms, less hassle then pressing bushes out

Yea, lower arms are a very common mot fail on the escorts, i must have bought at least 4 sets in the last 5 years, mind 3 of those years i was running Peugeot offset wheels causing excess wear on the bushes.
They are not vey expensive and quite simple to do yourself.
