Re: Car and engine cleaning pre mfk test

View Post
Our car is up for an MFK in early Feb - just got the appointment card.

Couple of questions -

1) What is actually done/tested as part of it? I don't really fancy getting a garage to take the car for me, as any time we go near one a bill for many hundreds appears, for the simplest of tasks. My german is okish - what will I be expected to do?

2) As above, the car is in good shape, and recently serviced. Other than turning up clean (as mentioned by previous posts), anything else to specifically check that's a simple fail? (other than simple stuff such as bulbs?)


A few pointers:
Do an emergency brake from c.40kms to hear/feel any possible issues.

Check your lights and fittings - seems to be common trip up area, in my case the lights for the number plate need to have the glass cleaned from the inside ... no return trip, simply get it done ... so back to trusty Haynes Manual.

The rest is simple MOT stuff from what I saw.
