  1. Mot!!!!!!!!!

    Hi Mike T, Sorry for the late reply and thank you for your responce. The mechanic at the garage was obviously wearing a mask when he told the wife, " i cant pass your MOT because you have no lights on your number plate. To fix it you will need to have your entire car rewired!" So going by what you said Mike, i looked in the boot behind the number plate and all i had to do was to reconnect a wire that had come out, which took a few seconds. I (not the wife this time) ;) took the car back and he passed the MOT and didnt mention anything about wiring! Thanks for your advice Mike T you saved my wife and i a lot of money. Kind regards Wayne
  2. Mot!!!!!!!!!

    Afternoon all, I have just had a call from the misses saying the her ford focus (same as mine but in green) hasnt passed the MOT due to her number plate lights (front and back) not working. Apparently bulbs have been changed and fuses. What could be the problem? Thanks Wayne

    Hi everyone, I have noticed a slight but irritating ratlling noise when i pull off and sometimes when driving. The noise sounds like its coming from the front of the car. Im worried that this could be an indication that my clutch is on the way out. Wayne :(

  12. Morning All, When i got into my car this morning i noticed that on the passeneger side foot mat there was a small pool of rain water. So as you do i checked the windows for leaks etc. I then put my hand where the blower for the heater is and noticed it was slightly wet. Im at work now but on my lunch break will see if i can find out where this rain water is coming in from. In the meantime does anyone have any idea about; 1. Where the rain water could be coming through from? & 2. What can i do to prevent this from happening again? As always thanks for your time and advice. Wayne

    Looking good James. I think i'll do mine next week weather permitting. Quick question though...........my rear drums are rusty. Do i need to clean them first or can i just apply the paint over the rust colored drums? Thanks Wayne
