Re: scrapping an imported car

Hi, I have an old (2002) UK registered car that I arrived in CH in, for which I have the import 13.20 form ,as it was part of my household effects. So far so good. However, the car does not work and is beyond economical repair. I want to scrap it or dispose of it for parts. Do I need a Carte gris for the car first, and if so, can I get a carte gris without passing the MFK? (it will not pass an inspection) I seem to be in a catch 22: can't scrap without Carte Gris, can't get Carte Gris without MFK, can't get MFK because it is scrap..... Any advice appreciated.
We did that, admittedly over 40 years ago!
The car was taken to the local breakers yard and the only paperwork that they required were the ones proving that my husband owned the car (in this case the stuff from the DVLA in the UK) and our copy of the paper showing that it had been officially imported into Switzerland.
Cost ~70 francs then, possibly a few hundred now?

Our old Peugeot would never've passed the Visite/MFK either, we'd imported it with the express intention of scrapping it after the first year.
