I've bought a second Picasso to use as a runabout while Wor Lass's car is having some major work done. I'll probably end-up keeping it for a while. It was cheap, high mileage, no history, and only 6 months left on the MOT. So, I'm expecting it to have issues. One thing I have noticed is the nearside C.V has a slight click. I've heard worse, and I probably only noticed it because I'm tuned-in to these sorts of things. How bad do they have to get before they fail the MOT? The car isn't likely to do many more miles before the test is due, but will just the slightest click from a C.V be a fail?

TIA
Stuart.

Hi

The split boot is enough to fail the MOT.

The tester will see the damaged boot and the grease.

They don't road test the car.
