When the time comes to book your MOT Manchester or a service for your car, then you should really look no further than Pugbitz. Not only do we combine value and excellence, but we’re also currently running a special offer that makes a Pugbitz MOT Manchester even better value.
The offer is simple – if you’ve spent £110 or more with us, whether it’s for a repair, a service or a trip to our body repair shop, we’ll do your MOT Manchester free of charge. That means you’ll save the £54 RRP, and you can book your test whenever it’s convenient for you. There are two very good reasons to book your MOT as soon as it’s due. The first is that it’s a legal requirement and driving without an MOT will invalidate your insurance and run the risk of a £1000 fine and six to eight points on your license. The second reason is that your MOT Manchester will help to ensure that your car is running as safely as possible. It does this by checking the following aspects of your vehicle:
Vehicle Identification Number
Your unique Vehicle Identification Number (VIN) has to be present and clearly legible.
The number plate on your car has to be in the right place, with lettering that’s clear and meets current regulations.
The lights on your car will be checked to make sure they work, are the right colour and are aimed correctly.
Steering and suspension
The various parts of your steering and suspension system will be checked to ensure they are working correctly.
Your windscreen wipers and washer will be checked to make sure they are in a good enough condition to guarantee a clear view of the road.
Your windscreen will be checked for chips and cracks. It will fail if there is a 10mm fault in the drivers’ eye line or a 40mm fault in the part of the screen cleaned by the wipers.
The horn will be tested to make sure it works properly.
All seatbelts will be checked to make sure they are in the right position, operate properly and are in good condition.
The front seats will be tested to make sure they are stable and secure
The entire fuel system will be checked for leaks, and to make sure the fuel cap and any seals are secure.
The exhaust emissions will be checked to make sure they meet current regulations, and the exhaust system will be checked for any leaks, faults or damage.
The structure of the bodywork will be checked for damage or erosion.
The doors will be tested to make sure that they close securely, and that the front doors can be opened from inside or outside the car.
The condition and stability of all mirrors will be checked.
Wheels and tyres
The wheels and tyres will be checked. In particular, the tyres have to be the right size, and must still have sufficient tread left on them.
The brakes will be tested to make sure they operate and perform correctly, and examined for signs of excessive wear.
Unlike an MOT Manchester a regular service for your car is not compulsory. It is strongly recommended, however, as it will keep your vehicle running with maximum efficiency, and will also help to retain its value. A full service is a major undertaking. Everything that is checked during an MOT will be checked, and much more besides. The engine oil and oil filter will be replaced, as well as the air filter and windscreen washer fluid. Parts of the engine such as all pipes and hoses will be checked, as well as the steering fluid, coolant and brake fluid etc. The suspension and steering will be checked, as will the clutch and all interior and exterior lights.
This is just a brief summary of some parts of a full service. Contact us to find out more and to book your car in for the best treatment around. And remember that spending £110 on a service or anything else at Pugbitz means you get your MOT Manchester free of charge. Peugeot specialists does not mean Peugeot expense.
