Well the results were even better than expected! Shocked

Refusal items .... OSF track rod end has excessive play & windscreen washer provides insufficient washer liquid (but this should be a quick fix!)

Then there were a couple of advisories ... OSF ball joint has slight play in upper joint & play in NS top suspension arm.

All in all a top result ... especially as it was tested at Heritage VW main dealers!

Will pick up a full set of track rod ends, long travel ball joints & a set of urethane outer beam bushes at the Big Bang weekend which should tighten up the front end once and for all! And sort out the washer bottle Twisted Evil

So all in all although she failed it's been a good day & Vamp with Sharon behind the wheel will soon be a common sight on the roads of Weston & Worle! affraid
