Hi Everyone I have a mk3 1996 Polo which i have had now for 24 years. Its had a fortune spent on it in that time but I love that car.

The MOT threw up a major defect - subframe mounting, excessive corrosion nearside front.

oldtech posted a topic in Bodywork, Interior and TrimA couple of MOT's back I got a corrosion advisory for O/S beam mount near the fuel filler area. I Aquasteeled it up and it wasn't detected at the last MOT at a different garage (good sign, right?). The whole arch is rotten now; the skins are separating and the GT arch trim fell off somewhere never to be seen again. How bad does the beam mount have to get to fail an MOT and is it an expensive welding repair?
Another MOT question for you guys. My 6n has quite a large rusty hole in the spare wheel well and I would love some insight into whether this will fail its MOT next month. I’ve stupidly not paid much attention to it for the best part of a year and it’s now time to start worrying. Terrible pics attached. Rust hole can be seen on the left of the second one in relation to suspension and stuff.
