Quote from: JB21 on December 7, 2022, 07:53FYI the lever shouldn't travel more than 45 degrees on the car, if in good condition they will bite with less than a cm of movement on the lever.
Quote from: Gaz mr-s on December 7, 2022, 09:47Interesting.....where did you learn that?
Quote from: JB21 on December 7, 2022, 09:51By checking a good caliper vs a shot one, however the travel should be 2-3cm for the bite not 1 cm. Just been out and rechecked.
Quote from: Joesson on December 7, 2022, 09:23@JB21 It is legal to drive without an MOT certificate, but only to a precooked appointment at a MOT test centre/ Garage.
Quote from: mr2garageswindon on December 7, 2022, 10:29When you have got a dangerous defect on the mot you are not supposed to drive it until it is repaired. I do KNOW of some garages using the wording to their advantage and insisting it gets repaired with them.. this is a main dealer!By driving the vehicle KNOWING it is classed as unroadworthy will be what you can be prosecuted for.When I fail a car for a dangerous defect I advise them of this but also say it is up to them and I have no power to stop them. You gotta be pretty unlucky to get stopped.
Quote from: JB21 on December 7, 2022, 10:37I'll only get stopped if I go past an ANPR equipped police car and it pings for MOT. Like you say if I do get stopped, I have no case to fight.
