have a good look round the beam axle while youre there,it can rot out particularly around the angle brackets to the rear shocks+the axle mounts,when you do the front brakes also take a close look at the lower arms where they bolt to the subframe.the forward mount in particular the arm rots thru and detaches.and yup most if it is hard to see with the wheels on:shock:

Failed MOT on wear/corrosion on front/rear discs

Car does very few miles (3-4K) so rear wheels not been off since 2015 when last pads and discs fitted (by garage)

Made a start on the Offside rear first and met by a seriously bad brake pipe, as you can see by the end of doing the disc and pads it burst the fluid.

Worrying to think I was driving about like that and never noticed on this last or any other MOT's, oddly the nearside pipe is in much much better condition and they are both original to the car.
