Subframes are made of steel and that makes it subject to rust from salt on the roads in winter. Leaking batteries also corrode the steel. brake fluid ;leaking will also cause rust in steel. so bad that it failed and inspection then the answer is to get a subframe from the wreckers ( good frame not rusted or bent) and have it fitted to the vehicle.

My 2006 Tucson's front passenger side suspension is producing a horrible "knocking" sound.


warranty on these bushes is not allowed even in warranty period as they are classed as consumable items (tyres -brake pads -clutch linings etc). The price sound about right and any accredited service shop should be able to handle the job . With out unforseen problems it should be no more than 2 hours for both sides . You will need to do both sides.

MOT failure


I can almost guarantee somebody has installed your bulbs the wrong way round I've seen this before many times, of course we're talking about Main beam headlight bulbs, I speak as a Renault technician.
I suggest you take it to the main dealer, I hope I have been helpful.

Suzuki Grand Vitara 1999:


Going by your description I think it could be something different, I would have the brake master cylinder checked, if you are suffering brake failure and shuddering it sounds like your callipers arent getting equal pressure when you apply the brakes. Or a freat lack of pressure to suffer brake failure. I hope this helps.

Reverse lights on my vauxhal corsa v reg are not working


It`s the reverse light switch under the bonnet had to replace it on my 16v t reg corsa costs about 8-£10 and comes off easily because it`s just a bolt with electricals leading to the back lighting. This happens on every Corsa. Let me guess Your Heater control lights and fan swich lights have gone too on the interior. Any problem corsa related, been there done it.

Ford Mondeo failed its MOT exhaust emisson test


The advice that the garage gave you seems right. If any bushes were worn they would show up on the MOT Test. Try taking it to another garage to check out the Cat for your peace of mind.

Reverse lights on my vauxhal corsa v reg are not working


Yes. You can get the MOT station to do the repair or you can try and solve the problem. Check your fuses, the earth connections, your wiring and the voltage at the bulb. It could also be a faulty switch. I hope some of that will help.
