But my original question was Who would get in trouble the nt who tested or the nt who did the retest , considering car failed on nothing that meant checking rear of car.

That would be, the original NT, and The AE!:shock:

lets not forget, "points" make "prizes";):P

if there was nothing in the original failure documents regarding the rear of the car then it is the original tester that will take the rap for it as it is the original tester that should have spotted the corrosion .


is he called "steevie wonder", by any chance??;):P

I'm here & watching Wes - but the photo is too small to have a proper look at the defect & too pixilated when downloaded & magnified, so I can't make any judgement on the claims that the axle has had an impact causing a crack.

Fence sitting I'm afraid ;)


I am liking the look of sitting on the fence,;) defect? now theres an option?:?

 


Where did my post go ?

afiafi1 wrote: this is my first post. i did a retest on a micra and tested the fail items and anything associated with fail item(8weeks ago) a local mot station who got shut down by vosa brought it in,(he stoped using us ,because we would not look the other way on his vehicles). i had the new owner of the car complaining car should not have passed due to corosion on rear axle, original fail had no defects on rear of vehicle. i asked him to email me picture, on the picture it looks like car has had a impact at rear axle thus putting crack in it. when i retested it the car failed on corrosion at front of vehicle, when it comes to corrosion and im retesting i have a look at rest of car and touch most panels with finger /thumb as i go past just to check nothing has been missed, i also checked for movement using shaker plates as it had also originally failed on front balljoint (the rear axle was firm with no movement what so ever)

used finger and thumb pressure and there was no movement what so ever, asked original tester he used finger and thum and corosion assesment tool,
my question is as i retested and issued test documents and if vosa say corosion was there at time of test , will i get in trouble or original tester or both.
on picture there there is corosion but when retested there was no cracks or weakness in metal, original tester has had a look at picture and said at time of test it was all firm.



And where is "stealth" lurking when you need him??;):P

Is? this guy is a vosa rep? investigating an appeal??:? 

Is this guy retesting a vehicle that was originally tested at an other testing station? That should have had a full Inspection?:?

Maybye You guys should declare your interests on this forum? and state that you are  "Vosa Members" and not just mere "Members"?:?

Like I Have stated, I am a contributor on this forum and fall into the "Trade Member" Category.;)

as previously posted, "confusion";)

I can't make out too much from the quality of that picture, by the time I zoom it up it is very pixilated.

If as you say the rear wheel has had an impact, you have nothing to worry about, at the time of test there was no defect with the car.

Just because a component cracks or fractures after an impact does not mean it was obviously weak at the time of the MOT test.

this post appears to be one of those "fart smeller" ones, whereby the op intends to confuse all of those of good intentions, into missreading what has been originally  posted?:X

In an appeal the original tester is responsible for the whole of the vehicle, since that is what he had to test, and you are held responsible for any items which need retesting. By the sound of it you've pretty much had to retest everything.
Anything the original tester missed is his problem, and not yours.

So there is an inverted appeal against the pass that you issued 8 weeks ago??

Can you just clarify something.

I think you're saying that you did the retest 8 weeks ago.
Not that you retested 8 weeks after the car failed it's MOT.
