Stealth having got past D day Prescribed area excessively corroded, significantly reduced structural strength
5.3.6 (a) (i) or Prescribed area corroded, not considered excessive

I aint a judge... theres a hole & never used my thumb or forefinger but choice as above is this fair? Would not Prescribed area corroded, not considered excessive & NOT REDUCING STRUCTURAL STRENGTH be appropriate?

Feel around if you can get your finger in there its right under the trailing arm mount bracket, there isn't the clearance. If Vehicle Technical Data (VSI) gave a lead on fiesta trailing arms ref Fractured on Fifth generation (2003–2008) (UK Mk6) it may give a heads up in helping towards saving lives... you'll see it every time DB9? Thumb & forefinger dont do it on this one Rob

When you jack up the rear of the vehicle allowing the rear axle to hang freely lower the ramp so that it is at a comfortable working weight for you while underneath the vehicle, then using your hands and fingers feel round the axle pressing in various locations. Use a mirror to see the top sectional area of the axle, you'll see it every time. Also when you are inspecting the rear wheel and tyre you can look between the wheel arch in front of the rear wheel and you will see the axle casing there.Remember also you can use a small pinch bar to check for excessive free play in the axle bush/mounting.

a lotta those words look sorta familiar....but seriously how hard can it be for the ministry to get the relevant nos from the manufacturers and put it on the system?the type approval guys/system will know them if no else does.any halfway average combo of computer tech and secretary to make the calls and enter the info shud have(at the very least)done the most popular motors inside a week and I would be surprised if it took THAT long.if you don't want the grief of entering it on the system then make a diesel version of the emissions data book and put it in our next email/sn.it aint rocket science:shock:all I do at the moment is fail a motor on smoke only for it to get some sorta bulls**t test from someone else,the crooks think its f***ing Christmas.if its on the system they aint got any grey areas to hide behind

Nearly 9,500 residents of London die prematurely every year as a result of long-term exposure to air pollution, a 2015 study by researchers at King’s College London showed.

Living Diesel. Im not a fan of this I don't want to be here much longer to be honest (and that's the vehicle presenter?):shock: :D
There's a city in my mind
Come along and take that ride
And it's alright, baby, it's all right
And it's very far away Mr Barlow
comment is awaiting moderation
But it's growing day by day and it's all right...a lotta the separate plates im seeing don't have emissions on em,just type approval/eu no or similar,the ministry HAVE to start supplying plated limits at log in for this to be enforceable

Manual tells us to test to manufacturers limit where available yet on a pre 2008 vehicle there is no failure for being above manufacturers limits
