How on earth has this happened?? I was driving my car right up to the day before it's MOT was due which also happened to be the day we went away for a week. Take a look at this photo and try to work out what it is:
Hopefully that will be it. Not a costly repair as the shoes are about £10 or £12 and the cylinder about £15, however, he is frightening me by saying there is a bit of knocking at the front end which could be nothing but again could be serious. I am prepared to take a chance with the MOT, but if they find a problem at the front which is a biggy, then my little car will go to car heaven, sobs.
