Yup. The snot green thing failed it's last mot.

You know the classic story; To repair or not to repair.

So, I'll give an imaginary prize to whoever can guess either the failure list, or the estimated cost of repair :(

:popcorn: :popcorn: :popcorn:

hehehe...

not free to fix, a single part needed.

4 bolts to remove, and refit. :)

The advisories were a slightly corroded from brake pipe, and a broken but functional door handle.

It was a ball joint!

Congrats M&D, I'm sending you an imaginary prize of a blank cheque.

It's the balljoint attached to the central drag link, so need to undo and split 4 balljoints... should be a straightforward job, and the drag link should be here tomorrow. :)
