MOT failure 06 C5 Hdi. 136bhp

Post by boristhespie »

My 06 C5 Hdi. 136bhp failed MOT on a number of things.

The caliper is sticking. Who knew? This car and all my C5s have eater calipers. This caliper was replaced the end of last year. Talk about poor quality design.

But the strap holding the fuel tank is loose but Citroen don't make these anymore or provide one. So the garage is making one from metal (£££)

Failed emissions which is a worry given the day before I had a midnight motorway journey for 200 miles.

Wondering how they'll get this sorted.

Tyres have split in tread. I am seeing a lot of this in my tyres. These aren't that old.

Track end is loose. Expected.

Corroded suspension pipe.

Any advice on the fuel emissions beyond additive?
