Well, that should be problem solved. f**k knows how it was wrong in the first place. Now though, there is no play and i've took it for a quick test drive and there wasn't any knocks, so all should be good in the hood.
MOT Round 3 on Monday. What's the betting that he'll find something new to fail it on??
Not in the hub properly I take it then???
I'm assuming so. I went and bought another one this morning, just incase it was the wrong part or something. We took the pinch bolt out and the threads we're totally f**ked?! so fitted the new bolt and ensured everything was tight/no play. All is good.
Suppose this is the price I pay for being pikey and asking daddy to do things for me .
That will be because the pinch bolt wasn't through the notched bit of the ball joint
Hopefully it will pass now.
Fingers crossed. I will actually flip if it doesn't. Booked in for Monday afternoon.
I want to start doing s**t to this car, rather than wasting money on extra MOTs.
If is just a retest I thought it was only on the original failed parts. Could be wrong tho
Yeah this one will be a full retest, as 1. i've had my free retest and 2. it's passed the 10 days for the retesting.
Good luck mate!
I see why you were angry on FB
MOT Round 3.
The sunflower finally has an MOT. Now time to spend on stuff that I actually want to...
LOL.... Did you have to suck off the tester for it to pass?
Nahh, just a REACHAROUND and an extra £20.
Glad to hear it was just as simple as the balljoint not being fitted properly.
Now you can actually clean it
