Hi All,

My 1995 MGF passed another MOT today, but I had some advisories that I need your help with please.

Has anyone had the same advisories, or knows what they will be referring to please?

I haven't got under the car to take a look around yet, as basically it too cold for my delicate Southern hands this evening lol :)

Thanks in advance.

Interestingly I see no picture in first post and if I try to put only posted URL in web browser, it says Web page cannot be found.
I assume that must be down to where I have the image stored = in my Imgur photo storage account. Can you see it by viewing the post in the forum generally though, not just trying to see the individual photo?
Thanks for your input everyone, it is greatly apprceiated.

I had a good look at all four rear subframe mounts today, and the surrounding areas with Dert's comments about sills etc in mind. Thankfully, the old girl is still solid on both sides in that area, so that was a relief.

But I did find this on the Offside:

Which I have to assume was what the MOT tester found yesterday...

After a bit of wire brushing:

And finally straight after brushing on what little Black Hammerite I had left...

I will take a look at those lower arm bushes next weekend now, then take it from there.

Thanks again everyone.

Its ok, but I would have taken it off and done the job more thoroughly. But each too their own. Regards D4KGP.
With all the horror stories I have read about subframe mounting bolts shearing off, that was the last thing I was going to do! Lol

Why have you shown photos of the anti roll bar bush mounts rather than the subframe mounts ?
The ARB mount bolts to the SF mount.
