Reason(s) for failure

  • Offside Front position lamp(s) not working (1.1.A.3b)
  • Offside Windscreen wiper does not clear the windscreen effectively (8.2.2)
  • Emissions not tested (7.3.A.1)
  • Exhaust catalytic converter missing where one was fitted as standard LAMBDA SENSOR NOT FITTED (7.1.3)
  • Nearside Front Lower Suspension arm has excessive play in a ball joint (2.4.G.2)
  • Offside Front Outer Front constant velocity joint gaiter damaged to the extent that it no longer prevents the ingress of dirt etc (2.5.C.1a)
  • Nearside Rear Brake pipe excessively corroded (3.6.B.2c)
  • Offside Rear Brake pipe excessively corroded (3.6.B.2c)
  • Parking brake: efficiency below requirements (3.7.B.7)
  • Rear Brakes imbalanced across an axle Axle 2 (3.7.B.5b)

Advisory notice item(s)

  • Nearside Front Tyre worn close to the legal limit (4.1.E.1)



anyone experience any of these? typical fixes and costs please? breakdown with prices of parts and labour separate is possible...



regarding the rear brakes. i have serviced the rear caliper; i,e caliper piston if free also handbrake lever is fine. caliper is not seized... i have a feeling that it be me because i may have not bled the rear calipers properly. also slide pins are butter smooth on both side aswell. one thing i have previously noticed before is there is a funny sound sometimes when braking. its hard to describe but similar to a electronic clicking sound. not really clicking but more like a pump type sound not sure what best to describe it. it only happens rarely and i cant even force the sound to happen to show someone... could this be the abs pump and module? also what are costs to get this and getting it fitted properly...?


any tips and tricks will be much appreciated. i am willing to spend a wee bit to get things right.

Could be bulbs for headlight.

New set of wipers needed

Fit a cat converter

Fit a new lower arm instead of messing about with the balljoint,best to do both sides but if money tight that will do.

Gaiter damaged means its shaft out of hub to sort unless you try and bodge it with one of the crappy kits you can get.For the money an hassle you might a well fit a new driveshaft for £27.

Rusty part of brake pipes can be cut out and renewed,not a problem with that.

Renew both rear calipers.

Job sorted.
There is no replacement for displacement.

Cat converter. Can this be off any car. As in does it have to be a specific bore etc or are they all the same?

How much would labour be for the whole lower are replacement per side?

Also labour for just replacing the cv boot. And then labour for replacing the whole driveshaft.

The brake pipe - is the the copper bit. Are you supposed to replace the whole line back to the brake pump ro can i just locally cut out and join with that couple bolt?!

Regarding caliper - its free and should be fine. I have taken fully apart and cleaned properly. All slide pins greased as well... rear pads also only done 2000 miles if that with like nre material still...


Although i do quite doing things on a budget as you may already know!! I dont want to spend a amall fortune getting thibgs right only as i have spend far too much buying the car in the first place also in ongoing general mainteneace i have spend a few hundred here and there to get inti somewhat decent condition. In the long term im willing to get the driveshafts done eapecially if yiur saying it saves the hassle for evey other time and for peace and mind. But in the short term want to get it through with relatively low spondoolies and as quick as possible.

Unless you need your car desperately, all these things can be fixed in a week or so.

Offside Front position lamp(s) not working (1.1.A.3b) - bulb change?

Offside Windscreen wiper does not clear the windscreen effectively (8.2.2)- new wiper blades

Emissions not tested (7.3.A.1)
Exhaust catalytic converter missing where one was fitted as standard LAMBDA SENSOR NOT FITTED (7.1.3) - get a s/s manifold front flea bay approx £100. Get a cat from scrap yard and lambda if needed.

Nearside Front Lower Suspension arm has excessive play in a ball joint (2.4.G.2) - new lower arm.
Offside Front Outer Front constant velocity joint gaiter damaged to the extent that it no longer prevents the ingress of dirt etc (2.5.C.1a) - fit new arm here as well to balance out new on other side and fit new CV joint at same time.

Nearside Rear Brake pipe excessively corroded (3.6.B.2c) -new pipe piece joined to good pipe with coupler.

Offside Rear Brake pipe excessively corroded (3.6.B.2c)- same as above.

Parking brake: efficiency below requirements (3.7.B.7)- adjust cable

Rear Brakes imbalanced across an axle Axle 2 (3.7.B.5b) adjustments above will help.

All jobs can be done at home if your handy with tools.

Realistically your looking around £250 for parts and free labour if you do it yourself. As for labour costs at a garage, it all depends on the garage you go to and how much discount they may give you. But as a ball park figure probably another £200.

Cost effective if you do it yourself. If you can't then scrap may be your option.
Its not what you drive....Its about how you drive it!

Timewise i have more than enought cars to keep me going for a bit. But ideally like you said want to get back on the roards with this green one asap as insurancr at this age (19) is stupid so dont want to splash out insurance for no reason... so end of the week would be ideal. But no longer than end of the month...

All brake stuff can sort myself by the sounds of thijngs. Just needed to know what to do...

Arm i can do myself its just the ball joint i cant or dont really want to attempt....

And the cv boot aswel...

But the exhaust jobby sound most expensive. Need all ideas to get atound thr exhaust. Because its all welded. I meed all the downpipe and manifold aswell maybe... very expensive... open to ideas i deally as low as poss with exhaust as after cristmas looking to replacr the whole system anyway...need to save for that...

All depends on what you want to spend, with that shopping list I can not see you getting it sorted for anything less than £250

With labour and parts if a garage does the above work I bet it's around £400

I get the car back tomorrow now as i was unable to pick up today

I will take a look at the exhaust and depending on how bad it looks i will see if its something im willing to tackle.

But all brake stuff and obs bulb and wipers is stuff i want to do myself. B

But will get garage to sort the ball joint and cv boot.

But if i can get the exhaust, cv boot and ball joint done for about 3-350 all in thats perfect for me! Is that likely?
