OB­SO­LETE PARTS

Car Mechanics (UK) - - Mot Changes -

A com­mon prob­lem with older ve­hi­cles is the sup­ply of spare parts and the fact that many of them have be­come ob­so­lete. The MOT ex­emp­tion rules have catered for this prob­lem by stat­ing al­ter­na­tive parts can be fit­ted “to pre­serve a ve­hi­cle, which in all cases must be when orig­i­nal type parts are no longer rea­son­ably avail­able.” Ex­am­ples in­clude fit­ting an al­ter­na­tive car­bu­ret­tor be­cause parts to ser­vice the orig­i­nal car­bu­ret­tor are un­avail­able.
