If there was only one area of corrosion which fell into two prescribed areas as I described earlier then it would not be double counted kit. Points for one defect only.

Talking to the helpdesk today about the subject was like pulling teeth kev.

Not a great deal of help and obviously working from a script. :(

I need to get hold of a trainer but Martin has retired now.

if it came into the area of seat belts & suspension I would opt for either failing it as both or failing it as suspension , if it only failed on seat belts the owner may well take the rear seats out expecting a pass ( then no doubt end up getting irate when it failed the retest on something it hadn't originally failed on ), this is not an option for them when it's failed as suspension .

For example, if the corrosion was 15cm away from the seat belt mounting but 25cm from the suspension mounting then select just the seat belt prescribed area for failure.

I have been told more than once to do as below:-
To list it as many times as the hole came into a prescribed area, ie 2 or 3 times if necessary.

VOSA clarification needed here, PLEASE

If the corrosion fell within two seperate prescribed areas, for instance a holed rear sill or wheel arch which was within 30cm of a lower rear seat belt mounting AND a rear suspension mounting point, it should only be recorded once using whichever component mounting is closest to the corrosion.

Im sure that I was told to record that example as 2 items, but I have never seen the point. Recording once makes more sense, if I remember I will bring it up on my refresher in April.

On a refresher course I was told to list it as many times as the hole came into a prescribed area, ie 2 or 3 times if necessary.
On an MOT forum night this same subject was brought up and we were told to do it just the once. That is how I have been doing it since.

2 seperate RFR for the front links, as they are two seperate components.

Corrosion within 30cm of a prescribed area would be one defect even if there was more than one hole. You can add an advisory that there is more than one hole.
