Well guys my cars has gone in for the dreaded M.O.T ..

Garage said he'll ring me in a hour with some news ..

I just know its gonna fail and will cost me loads :P ... Does anyone else
have faith in the Renault at M.O.T time :roll:

good luck buddy....can drive over to flamingmonkeys with your new ticket heehee

lol .. well got car back and it failed :cry:

Only on one thing though :D

Offside rear rear parking brake recording little or no effort :roll:

so basically it failed on the hand brake which isnt to bad ..

He said the RBT Park Brake Efficiency was 7% , when you pull the hand brake their is very little if any movement of the hand brake cable .. so
probably just needs a new cable .. :P

So it goes back friday for the work needed then on saturday she's up for
sale as im after a 200sx s13 or a fiesta rs turbo 8)

so happy days :D

how much for ;)

25-04-2007, 17:41
Not to sure fella probably about 1500

Done 82k . Cam belt and head done @ 79k

Basically its a Willy Rep with the Alloys , Full interior and carpet , dials ,
Decals etc

also has a Magnex exhaust and a remapped chip

few pics below ... gonna sort some better pics on the weekend after its
come back from the garage ..

Only thing it needs to be mint is a bonnet and tailgate but thats if you want
it a minter ... as rust around the rear wiper arm and the paint has reacted
from a cheapo repaint by the bonnet scoop from the previous owner .. :roll:

To be honest though the car has only done 2.5k 2500 miles since the
last M.O.T a year ago so hasnt been used much . So i suprose thats why
the handbrake needs doing as its been parked up more than than enough
in the last year :P

25-04-2007, 19:04
mine failed dramatically on 6% :lol:

all good now :D

25-04-2007, 19:09

26-04-2007, 11:56

26-04-2007, 12:46

Thought it was to good to be true ..

Garage at first said it was a handbrake fault .. Now it turns out to be a
buggered rear brake Caliper AARRGH !! :evil:

27-04-2007, 16:48
happened to me mate, pads needed changing and sliders were beyond ****ed! 110+ vat a paid for a pair of new 'uns

27-04-2007, 17:03
Oh well nowt to worry cost 120 + 40 for the M.O.T so not to bad
i suppose..

Strange thing was he said one side if the brake pad has to be screwed
in or something ... dont know what he ment by that :?

Anyway picking it up tomorrow , then it goes up for sale

Happy Days :D

27-04-2007, 17:07
the outer pad is bolted to the caliper

27-04-2007, 17:09
the outer pad is bolted to the caliper

Yer thats what he said , he said he'd never seen that before in his life .

Then he started slaging the French off lol :roll:

27-04-2007, 17:16
You dont actually have to screw it in either, works perfectly fine and safely without the screws.

27-04-2007, 21:31
wether he meant taking the slack up in the play between pad and disc by winding the piston out thatll improve handbrake
