Hello and thanks for trusting me to help you today. I am a licensed diagnostic and repair technician, I look forward to working with you.
If there is an obvious oil leak from a shock absorber it would be an MOT Failure, If it is damp but not wet, it could be an advisory item.
i think i can send a pic on the chat one moment
Ok, that would be great.
thats both of em
Yes that will definitely be an MOT Failure.
thanks for the advice
No problem. I can provide a copy of the official MOT manual wording regrading shock absorbers if that would be of any help.
that would be great, is there a weblink for it too?
Yes, this is the full manual. http://www.motinfo.gov.uk/htdocs/m4i00000001.htm
