Exclamation It's that time of year again MoT ?

Jeep WJ is booked in for MoT this Tuesday - hoping for a Pass but you can never be certain. A Pass will then trigger new tyres on all four wheels - going for Uniroyal Rainsport tyres @ 380 for a set fitted & balanced - they should last for the rest of the vehicles ownership by me.

Current tyres are all within MoT depth with some odd tread scuffing on the outer edges - I think its when the diff lock comes in and you get the three-penny bit feel on the steering when turning tight circles/full lock at low speed that has chopped the edges on sharp gravel.

Good luck with it
Mine's due on the terrano early Feb.
Going to get it up on the ramps at the weekend and give it a going over.
I know the handbrake needs adjustment but fingers crossed that will be all.

Talking Result - It's passed with some advisories !

Passed it's MoT with a few advisories, rear ARB bushes & both front upper ball joints have some movement - they advised to grease them as there are nipples fitted!

New set of tyres soon, ordered rear ARB D bushes - it's the third set in the last 5/6 years so no biggie.

Good news Ted but put those ball joints on your to do list, grease will only lubricate not take out play, Rick

Wink Interesting conversation at Garage I use on this issue.

Those are my thoughts Rick though strangely enough the Garage Owner said the new MoT ramp they have had fitted last week -its the latest larger MoT ramp - is very good at being able to picking up relatively small play / movements in the suspension - he said he would leave it for now as its such a small amount of play - if it was due for replacement they would have failed it. He then checked with the actual tester and asked if there were grease nipples fitted - there are - he said just grease them for now! Ted
