Mitsubishi MOT Checklist
1. HEADLIGHTS AND INDICATORS:
Check that all of your car’s lights function properly – headlights, sidelights, rear lights, hazard lights and indicators.
2. NUMBER PLATE
Make sure that the number plate is clean and legible – even a quick wipe with a cloth can make a difference. The font and spacing of letters must also comply with legal requirements to be passed by the MOT station.
3. SEATS AND SEATBELTS
The drivers seat should adjust forwards and backwards and all seatbelts should be in good, working order. Test movement of the seat and inspect the seatbelts full length for damage. Tug sharply on all seatbelts to check that they react as they’re supposed to if you have to brake severely.
4. WINDSCREEN WIPERS
Make sure your wipers are able to keep your windscreen clean – any tears or holes in the wiper rubber can be an MOT fail.
Give a short blast of the horn – if it doesn’t work, your Mitsubishi dealer will need to repair or replace it.
6. BRAKE LIGHTS
Press the brake pedal and ask a friend to check that the rear brake lights come on – including any supplementary brake strip light. Alternatively, carefully reverse up to a reflective surface and look behind to see for yourself.
7. WHEELS AND TYRES
Check that wheels and tyres are undamaged. The minimum legal tyre tread depth is 1.6mm and any tyres with less than this will be marked as an MOT ‘fail’ (though it’s recommended that tyres are changed when tread reaches 3mm). If you’re in doubt about how much tread is left on a tyre, your Mitsubishi dealer can check for you. The dealer can also advise on the type of tyre that is right for your car if a replacement is required.
Check the view out of the front of the car for damage – any damage larger than 40mm will cause a ‘fail’, as will any damage wider than 10mm in the ‘swept’ area of the windscreen in front of the driver.
Top up the washer bottle before taking the car in for a test – something as simple as an empty container can cause an MOT fail.
10. FUEL AND ENGINE OIL
Make sure your car is filled with enough fuel and engine oil – you can be turned away from the MOT without suitable levels of either, both of which are required when running the car to test it emissions levels. If you are unsure about the type of oil that should be used, ask your Mitsubishi dealer. Note: When checking fluid levels and handling parts that could become hot to the touch (e.g. bulbs), it’s always best to ensure that the vehicle has had an opportunity to cool down fully.
When you buy a new car you want to enjoy driving it, not worry about the servicing costs. That’s why we’ve created the Mitsubishi Service Plan. It covers your car for its first three scheduled services, which not only offers you peace of mind, but the cost can be easily absorbed into one of our tailored finance packages.
