Get it fixed pronto as if it gets ripped off itcould cause some damage/an accident.

The one on my GTV snapped in half, but was fixed

If you need an MOT pronto, just remove the tray altogether.

Then after the MOT you could try re-attaching it if you want, I don't have one and I don't find it a problem though..

Thats great and i did think of removing it but was wondering if would be ok without it, now i no i will i think i will take the advice of removing before the mot and then perhaps trying to get it fixed after..

Many thanks for your advice

If you buy a new one, try the metal ones rather than an Alfa one. They cost a little more but they don't sag or rip - ever
