Today I took the Golf in for its annual MoT and sadly it failed. Firstly, the indicator repeater light on the near side wing mirror isn’t working. This isn’t totally surprising as that wing mirror has been hit several times and has a big hole in the casing. The other problem is apparently a leak in the exhaust. I thought that it might have been sounding a bit different recently, but certainly not as loud as the failure note makes it sound.
Time to hunt out an inexpensive replacement wing mirror.
