A comment I heard this week is that due to a change on the MOT, if something is fitted then it has to work.

My example is the reverse light - the switch on the box is knackered and the reverse light doesn’t work - Bearing in mind it was a 1980 Granada originally and was built in 1989.

Have I got to:
1) Ignore it, it isn’t tested
2) remove the lamp off the back for the test (not fitted, nt tested) or
3) cobble something together to make it work ?
