    MOT Advisory... What is it?

    Took the car for the free MOT with audi, it passed but i was given one advisory. Steering Pivot point slight play. What is a steering pivot point???

    Ive only recently had new wishbones, Ball Joints, ARB Bushes and Drop links and track rod ends fitted with strut top bushes and bearing replaced. I have know idea on what it is? Any Help would be appreciated. Thanks.

    I think it might be where the steering wheels bar( dunt no the technical names) joins onto the to the axle, or what ever turns the wheels. the play i think is when the steering wheel kind of wobbles side to side, without any movemnet in the wheels, like on a motorway you move the wheel 10mm and youll go into to the other lane , butr if it has 10mm play then it will keep going in a straight line. If you no what i mean, like me as a plumber when we say theres play i n a pipe, you can move it around.

    Loose in other. think im right :D correct me if not someone
    Its gone replaced with a mk2 golf gti 16v :D

    probably the tie rods. They are fairly cheap and fairly easy to replace. You can just buy the ends, but its not worth it as you wuld probably not manage to get them off the old rods.

    Thought of the month: People need to understand what is meant by 'Build Thread'...
