What did they mentioned or advise listed as defects on the MOT? if any?
I see ok.. i can see you MOT now
Yeah the brakes are usually the things that obviously if the vehicle isnt moved as such for a while then they do suffer from surface area corrosion and seizure,if the handbrakes left on then that can sieze in the on position..is just part and parcel of it not moving and being outside in the elements...As far as the rubbers goes on suspension etc..rubber can become brittle and hard as they age so its no surprise given the age of the van..use or lack off doesnt really come into it...that could be an issue you'll be facing at some point...brake rubber flexi lines , solid lines , brake fluid condition even can be a factor too...id say its general wear and tear on any vehicle tbh...At the end of day its down the MOT/vosa inspectors and his opinion wheter its deemed worn or in need of replacement....
oh ok...unless you can get it into shed or under cover or something..then the brakes usually are going to be effected anyway..unless you take it out or move it around the farm area on a monthly bases etc..just to keep things turning over and freed up..its all you can do really with these vehicles....Farms roads condition..yeah pretty unavoidable to be honest,..i know been down many of them on jobs..ha....but its a big enough vehicle to cope with it..its just that as age gets on with that vehicle you expect to have to do wear and tear items at somepoint..
Nope you've done everything and i was paid ..much appreciated.... anything else or need advice..then just ask for me and i'll be happy to help
