<strong>I had similar a problem getting my 145QV through the MOT test last Sept. It initally passed the emissions test with no problem, but failed the MOT on the handbrake.
When I went for a re-test it would not pass the emissions test. Luckily the garage I used passed it on the first emissions test (which I believe they should not really do). This was with a new lambda sensor recently fitted.
The only difference was that I left the car with them for the first test (garage is half a mile from my home), for the re-test I dropped in on my way home from work - a 15 mile drive.
This year I shall make sure the car is cold

I guess they were assuming the floor hadn't rusted away and disappeared since the last time they looked at it. I don't know where the las stands on this, but if it passes and you have the certificate it's that that matters most! If you know there are problems you should get them sorted even if it has an MOT. Good luck Lee, its prob just the lambda probe! wink
Make sure its cold....are you going to push it to them?!
