Got my MOT tomorrow morning at 8am.

Just tonight decided to check the rear fogs as ive only had the car 2 weeks.

The wires are all there (LED rear lights) but they dont work! :cya: Seems to be a wiring fault :(

So now the car is going to fail the MOT for me not having a light that I never use.

Can MOT test stations "overlook" these things?

yeah mate - they worked for the previous owner apparently but the switch wasnt connected. I wired up the switch every way possible but they STILL dont work :(

I have front fogs - when you turn them on, its like the sidelights turn on as they illuminate the front fogs and rear lights without the sidelights or headlights turned on.

It must be gremlins - but I dont have the knowledge to sort or the money to pay for an electrician :(


I need the MOT to go smoothly but I know its gonna fail... bloody nightmare!

Trip to Halfords for a cheapo fogger, should get your through, then take it back off, you got a year to sort the other one out.

What size are they?
Is that with VAT/Delivery/fitting?
That is for 255/40/17's

And that is indeed with VAT and fitting at my local place :)

The owner of the place is a mate of mine so does me a good deal.....

Give him a call if you like (Duncan at Toxic Rides - based in herts) and see what he can do for you. Tell him Lee with the skyline sent you :)
