I had one fail on a renault megane convertible right after the MoT Test ! as in just pulled in to my unit and the pipe blew open !!MOT man has a tool to access brake pipes unless covered in grease (and recorded on advisory) I MOTed a vehicle that was very muddy (I could have refused to test) but they were not local and had to be somewhere that day) 2 hours after mot a brake pipe failed but as I had recorded on the advisories that I was unable to inspect the pipes, no further action was taken. Lesson learned by owner, do not leave MOT till last minute and make sure it is in a fit state to have MOT (Clean wise). Greased pipes were a pain in the proverbial and the practice should be outlawed.
I use Petronas E3000 engine oil but would prefer Castrol but cost make it prohibitive.
Dont hold responsible for the Mot place as the pipe was covered under that plastic coating some renaults have so no way of detecting it etc .
So if a brake has corrosion be vary its not if it will pass an mot its when could it blow on you under hard braking . 😎😎
