I have my car booked in for its mot soon.

It's a focus mk2.5 1.6 petrol.

Just wondering what things you all check before your car goes in for its mot?

Any suggestions welcome.

Cheers.

Karl.

Apart from the obvious fluid levels wipers etc.

Anything that you can think of that most people don't check?

Buy yourself a Haynes manual, it goes through the entire MOT process in the book so you can prepare for it, I dont have access to my manual at the moment so cant offer it right now!

No problem Karl,

 

Yeah the first section has the MOT checks and intervals detailed. Of course, it doesnt cater for the DPF, but the rest is valid.

 

Click the following links to see what changes where made to the MOT system:

Car passed with only 1 advisory which was because they couldn't test the seat belt because child seat fitted. Good result I would say.
