MOT pass!

The tester was annoyed by the strange rattle. He couldn't find the source. I did when I got home. It's the sodding door check strap in the offside front door! Open the door and it goes away.

Well done on MOT pass!

You'll need to drive to the nearest ASDA to sort your check strap out for a full Jim Bell type approval

Oh dear. I must have missed something as the reference is lost on me.

 

Gave this thing a good cleaning (again!) today, though slightly annoyed at myself for losing the vast service history. Where the bloody hell did I put it?!

Jim took his mini down to Asda so head somewhere to work on it as he had to replace the check strap on his driver's door:)

Well done on MOT. Random thought as I look at the pic: thank you for NOT lowering it as seems to be the must-do mod in Skoda circles...I've no idea why.

I'm definitely not the lowering kind. It's too amusing watching the MOT man as he keeps jacking, keeps jacking, keeps jacking, oh, now the wheels are off the ground!

It's almost as if suspension and wheel travel are desirable things to have on our island's cratered, bumpy roads.

Fair point. They expect that to behave oddly though!

Oops. Guilty as charged yr onner. Mine is lowered. Not super low, I certainty have no problems with speed bumps. But I do like the flatter cornering and consider the stiffer ride an acceptable compromise.

The Felicia acheives the same thing with anti roll bars and if I could fit them to the Favorit I would go back to standard springs. Only the 1.6 and diesel have them but they transform the handling. They would fit the Fav but you need the lower arms and subframe with the mounting holes too. The cheapest way to do this would be to find a 1.6 as a spares car, put the suspension on the Fav and keep the rest for the Felly. Trouble is all Felicias are pretty rare these days and 90% of them are 1.3's. So I'll stick to my lowered springs for now. Besides, they're bright red and contrast nicely with the blue body colour.
