well on the service, the problems were, head lamp clips which will be £10 each, pads and shoes 75% worn, discs and drums worn, weak sump :-s, and one tire cracking. Im not sure if the brakes will fail tho because they still stop the car well. what does the weak sump mean??will it fail the mot for it and how much will it cost.lol

Sounds like a few things you could have done before putting it in for its mot...

Good luck with it though, my brackes have needed to be done (advisary) for the last 2 mot's :eek: i will get them done when my wheels come back...honest :eek:

Cant comment on the sump, i've no idea

What are the headlamp clips you talk of? £10 seems a bit excessive!

'weak sump' is typical for an 8v, it means the sump is showing rust and / or the gasket is leaking (which is practically every 8v engine tbh). i wouldn't worry too much unless its seriously leaking, in which case the cork gasket is an absolute pain to get off because it welds itself to the engine block face.

its only made of pressed thin steel and gets sprayed with road water and crud, as soon as the paint starts peeling it's going to start leaking (rhyme not intended).

£250 for a sump change is pretty typical, seeing as it is a nightmare to do a decent job with it.

Errr yeah, what are they 24carat solid gold or something? I was down Vauxhall today getting shock bolts and 2 new clips myself funnily enough.....I paid £1 for the 2!

(and £9 for 9 bolts.....sigh)

£9 for 9 bolts isn't too bad, when i was rebuilding my bike engine, i had to pay £30 for 16 bolts because they don't make engine bolt kits for mine anymore, well that and they were stainless and looked cool....
