MOT puzzle

3 posts in this topic

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

"Nearside front lower (arm) bonded failed and part of of unit is likely to become displaced. [2.4.F.2] " same for offside.

Hi it means that the lower suspension needs to be replaced . It has some play (movement )bonding I think you will find is the mounting bushes have come away from the arm but not enough to fail the MOT But I would advise you to do it or get it done asap Make sure you get Deisel arms as they are different from petrol ones

As he said. Basically the lower wishbones, which just die after a couple of years. Should cost around £10-£20 each side from your local motor factors and a dobble to swap over.
