156 failed MOT, well gutted
Took my 13 year old 156 for an MOT at Autolusso today, a good 142 mile round trip.
-O/S front lower wishbone, excessive play in rear sub frame bush
-O/S front upper wishbone excessive play in pin bush
Barely scraped through emissions test
Rear O/S trailing arm slight play
Pretty gutted but fault was my own I guess, but I did the lower arms 1 & 1/2 years ago with some eBay jobbies and upper arms were Birth and I did those a year ago.
I also fitted a cheap Cat too, but it seems that it's failing just after a year, either that or my engine is running poorly, but my mpg is okay and accelerates and idles well.
The guys at Autolusso quoted me £400 to replace both lower wishbones and powerflex the top wishbones.
Just goes to show that trying to save money on cheap parts doesn't work out well.
But I'm glad I took it to Autolusso as their new MOT bay picked up on these things.
Been given a courtesy car 147 1.6TS for the time being
