Just took my car for an MOT and it failed frown

Its failed once before but only on registration lamp not working.

This time its failed for

001 Offside Headlamp Insecure

002 Offside Outer (Sill) Suspension Component Mounting Prescribed Area is excessivley corroded

003 Centre exhaust has a major leak of exhaust gasses

004 Nearside front brake hose has insufficient room to move resulting in fouling on any part

005 Offside front brake hose has insufficient room to move resulting in fouling on any part

Are these easy and cheap fixes coz i havent got a clue!

001 Offside Headlamp Insecure

May need a new / 2nd hand headlight

002 Offside Outer (Sill) Suspension Component Mounting Prescribed Area is excessivley corroded

welding required - cost will depend how much, if its accessable etc...

003 Centre exhaust has a major leak of exhaust gasses

new center section needed, or if the exhaust isnt to bad, welding

004 Nearside front brake hose has insufficient room to move resulting in fouling on any part

005 Offside front brake hose has insufficient room to move resulting in fouling on any part

both of these just sound like the flexi pipe is incorrectly secured, and should be a 2 min fix - DIY smile

Are these easy and cheap fixes coz i havent got a clue!

I had the headlight insecure thing and corrosion last year. I took it somewhere else and it passed. They sound like, as Sanchez says, a bit fickle and made up. Walsh's have a tendency to do the prescribed mounting point has corrosion thing as well.

Brake hoses just need zip tying up, surely? Doesn't sound expensive anyway.

I stopped taking my cars to walsh's years ago because they were getting too fickle.
The only thing going for them is you dont have to pre book.
