MOT failure.

Nearside rear tyre below 1.6mm tread depth (quite handy really, as the tyre also had a nail going into it!), and swivel joints need replacing.

They're going to change the tyre for me now, even though they're short-staffed, and I'm booked in next week for the joints.

Incidentally, the parts and fitting for the swivel joints alone exceeds the cost of the service, MOT, replacement tyre and other tweaks put together!!!

We do have an insurance policy for parts and labour relating to mechanical failure, but because the joints fall under "wear and tear", they're not covered. Bah!
