Maybe Stealth could give us an example of a highly stressed vehicle compoent?

I'd have passed & advised ...the weld isn't a structural repair & from the photo there's no sign of excessive heat having been applied - the only heat would have been localised at the weld ;)

RFR - structural repair by welding to a steering linkage component, or signs of excessive heat having been applied


:shock: I cant see how you can apply weld without excessive heat, surly a weld to a highly stressed steering or suspension component is a fail? :?:?

I choose to ignore irrelevant comments

excessive heat is an mot failure - must read the manual

Ah but is that a Structural repair by welding? and has there been excessive heat in that little bit of welding? more heat than if you'd had to heat the lock nut to get it loosened?

I took these off a bmw today, I guess someone needed something to grip with mole grips!!I have never seen that done before, I guess there's always something new to see.
Please keep any other suggestions fit to print :)
