Garage shares MOT Halloween horror story

If you’re looking for some terrifying bedtime reading this Halloween, be sure to check out the Driver and Vehicle Standards Agency’s latest ‘Halloween Horror Stories’.

The latest edition includes creeping corrosion on a Vauxhall Meriva, a bulging tyre sidewall on a motorhome, a serious cut on a tyre, and a failed brake servo.

Not be outdone, Colin Comerford, owner of DC Motor Engineers Ltd, has been in touch with his own tale of ‘tread’.

A Mercedes-Benz A-Class was presented for its first MOT test with 17,000 miles on the clock. Colin told Garage Wire: “The owner commented on a bit of a clicking noise from the front wheel on the way to the garage.”

“It was the cords of the tyres slapping the inside of the wheel arch. Yet another example of why we must never more to biennial MOT testing.

“Most people do not check their tyres; sadly, this is not uncommon.”
