Beetle passed MOT. (Eventually)

Discussion in 'General Discussion' started by top banana racing, May 20, 2013.

  1. Finally got the Beetle through the test.
    Failed on:-
    1. Rust - (quelle surprise) I convinced the tester that it was all re-plated on the inside but the carpets have all been glued down. ;)
    2. Brakes - Only had to adjust by ten clicks on each drum. Don't know what he's complaining about, they work EVENTUALLY.
    3. Headlights - No amount of bullMarmite, cajoling and indeed outright lying could make him change his mind. The lights that had been perfectly good for 45 years had failed on 'beam pattern'. NUTS. Had to buy two new headlights. Bloody things were £110 each online but £16 each for Golf ones and a little drilling, all fitted. Happy days. :)

    Think I might take Ted to him this week, he wasn't all bad and could be influenced. ;)
    chrisgooner and oxiderenegade like this.
