My family car (08 Mondeo 2.5T) failed its control today:

Whining rear wheel bearing (been like that for 2 years but no play whatsoever) - Um OK fair enough

Left headlight 1mm too high - OK, I'll take that on the chin I should of had the vernia calipers on the headlight beams rolleyes

Rusty rear suspension arms!!!! I "challenged" the tester on this and his response was that its not structural and I need to rub them over with a wire brush and paint them black crazy At this point my wife pulled me out of the test station... 50 euro re-test ker-ching
