For the mot, how far away from the seatbelt anchor point has to b
My car failed the mot today, and the inspector left without explaining the problems to me. it says on the fail sheet "nearside (outer sill) seat belt anchorage prescribed area is excesivly corroded". i have look at the anchorage point on the outside, and around 4inches away from that point is a rust patch just starting to bubble under the paint. i could weld it up myself or get a friend to, if i knew the regulations on how far from the anchor bolts has to be rust free. any ideas?????

please be more specific with year and model ,its not difficult to change these with a big hammer and some mechanical knowledge ,the reason i ask is some earlier toyota models had a problem with the lower balljoints as they were spring loaded and failed the MOT because they jacked the wheels up and the way to test them was the moving metal plate in the floor .
what viscosity oil did you use???
blue smoke indicates oil burn,and if valve guides, would smoke on deceleration and if rings or block breather, would smoke on acceleration,first try block breather,wash out in petrol,then refit.the mot inspector will give you NO info on why......just charge you a fortune for doing something that may not need doing!!!
invest in a workshop manual and save yourself a fortune...
