#567817 - 23rd Aug 2011 10:33am MOT pass/fail????

I hope someone can help me here!
Due to some oik trying to break into my car about 8 months ago, the outside drivers door handle doesn't work. I have had the panel off and the mechanism is behind a sheet of perspex so I can't get at it but I can see that the plastic connector has snapped.
Question is, as I am due for an MOT next month, will this be a cause for a fail?

Thanks guys.

Yes, it'll fail.

Door needs to be able to be opened from the outside.

I have the same problem on mine at the moment, due to a snapped cable.

Here's a handy site that answers your MOT related questions....

Worth a look. Nobody is correct on the door sketch.

I have arranged for a pal who works at Autoglass to look at mine.

Croc, if you get the part you need I can ask him to fit it for you. He's obviously got the skills and the tools to remove the door cards and other bits and he'll do it for a couple of cans!

Even 41.46 seems steep!

My parts come to 70 odd and that's with BMW added tax!
