I have just taken my 4/4 sport for it's first MOT.
Seems a bit daft as it is just like a brand new car, but it has now covered close to 10,000 miles so it was interesting to see if anything was flagged up by the tester.
Apart from putting a smile on the faces of my local village garage...and some joking remarks from one or too young mechanics working there (they still have much to learn about real cars
), one thing that was remarked on was the slight play in all the wheel bearings.
For some technical reason (VOSA website), they couldn't call up the official advisory data on any 4/4 after 1985, so they could not tell if the play exceeded the advisory data for this model. They did however, note that there was no uneven tyre wear that would indicate any serious concerns, so the car was passed with an advisory on the bearing play, just to 'cover their backs', so to say.
I was wondering if I should be concerned about any bearing play ?
The car has recently been serviced at a Morgan service centre, and they seemed pretty thorough to me, so I would have expected them to have checked and adjusted accordingly as part of the service.
Any thoughts or suggestions ?
