MOT failure

Can't believe it failed MOT. Split driveshaft CV gaiter getting that sorted. Just wondering that normal 55k 2005? And anything else that I should be replacing at the same time?

Thanks mate, funny how I always get the common problems.

Is 80 labour a good price for this job?

or you could save time by doing it this way
80 is a fair price

Thanks, but Pewters is right I don't really touch the mechnical side, just electronics to some degree.

Well should be all done by 12 and back on the road, I take it I won't feel any difference.
