VIN CONFIRM

Vin Number

Vehicle Identification Number (usually 17 digits), given to each vehicle during manufacturing.



To validate the VIN (Vehicle Identification Number), note down the VIN from the engine, dashboard or door trim of the vehicle, enter the 17 digit number and we will check that the number you’ve entered matches the original VIN registered with the vehicle.

The VIN can be found by looking at the dashboard on the driver's side of the vehicle. The easiest way to view it is to stand outside the vehicle on the driver's side and look at the corner of the dashboard where it meets the windshield. If the VIN cannot be found there, open the driver's side door and look at the door post (where the door latches when it is closed). It is likely that the VIN will also be displayed in this location.

COMMON FAILURES

Unexpected breakdowns can cost you time and money. One third of vehicles aged between 3 and 10 years old will suffer mechanical failure within a 12-month period. The RAC have been attending breakdowns for over a century. We've used our exclusive breakdown data and expert knowledge to share the most common breakdown causes for this particular make, model and year of vehicle.

Listed below are the top reasons for breakdown, together with the symptoms to look out for when test driving the vehicle.

We’ve also included the top common MOT faults found for this make, model and year of vehicle, along with the symptoms of each fault for you to look out for during a test drive.

Common Breakdown Reasons

  • 1. Battery
  • Symptoms include: engine won’t / is slow to turn over, clicking noise when ignition turned to start position, dim / no lights on instrument panel, corrosion around battery terminals

    TIP: If engine won’t turn over properly ask to jump start & test the battery.

  • 2. Alternator
  • Symptoms include: a discharged battery, ignition warning light on / dim with engine running.

    TIP: Check that the battery/ignition warning light goes out after starting the engine, check alternator drive belt where possible

  • 3. Electrical Systems
  • Symptoms include: Electrical functions not working correctly.

    TIP: Check all electrical functions operate including wipers, washers, horn, electric windows, sunroof, audio system, seat controls etc. Check any switch operated boot or fuel filler flap release.

  • 4. Transmission System
  • Symptoms include: excessive noise, difficulty selecting gears, knocking noise on cornering, oil leaks from transmission unit or difficult gear selection.

    TIP: Check for smooth gear changes, listen out for unusual / ‘whining’ sounds from the transmission. Ask a qualified mechanic to check concerns with Auto gearboxes.

  • 5. Engine System
  • Symptoms include: abnormal noise, leaks, uneven running, lack of power, smoky exhaust fumes.

    TIP: check oil level & contamination – whitish oil on dipstick could indicate head gasket problems. Blue smoke indicates oil burning suggesting engine wear or damage

  • 6. Cooling System
  • Symptoms include: high temperature gauge reading / temperature not rising as engine warms up, heater cold after running engine, contaminated coolant.

    TIP: Check coolant level, look for coolant leaks in engine bay & beneath engine, inspect hoses for excessive wear / cracks.

  • 7. Braking system
  • Symptoms include: low brake fluid level, excessively hard /spongy brake pedal, parking brake not holding, car pulls to one side / judders when braking.

    TIP: Be aware of vibrations from brake pedal / steering wheel when braking. Ask a qualified mechanic to check any brake concerns.

  • 8. Alarm & Immobiliser
  • Symptoms include: alarm won’t set / deactivate, engine doesn’t start, engine cuts out, remote locking not working.

    TIP: Press fob button(s) & check locks operate, engine should start ok, test alarm function.

  • 9. Body
  • Symptoms include: bonnet / boot won’t open / close properly, door locks not working properly, panel damage.

    TIP: Check paint shading on different panels & any odd gaps between panels – these may indicate an accident repair/re-spray.

  • 10. Clutch System
  • Symptoms include: clutch slippage / lack of power, difficult gear selection, car judders when pulling away, abnormal noise or stiff pedal.

    TIP: Check the biting point is midway on the pedal. Unusual smells could indicate a slipping clutch, stiff pedal may indicate a cable fault.

Common MOT Failures

  • 1. Suspension
  • The suspension section of the MOT test covers both front and rear suspensions and any other components fitted around them. Vehicles are checked for whether there is enough clearance regarding suspension and whether it is weak due to excessive wear or corrosion. Damage to these areas can lead to poor suspension which is dangerous on our roads, but, you can check for these issues by seeing if your vehicle pulls or squeaks during turns and whether there is excessive tread wear on the tyres.

    Failure areas include: inadequate clearance of the axle or suspension, faulty/damaged suspension components, deliberate modification of components which weakens suspension.

    Tip: Push down on each corner of the car and the car should rise back up and not continue to bounce. Look out for rolling when driving around corners.

  • 2. Brakes
  • Over time, a car's brakes can suffer from corrosion, distortion and other wear and tear. This happens gradually and can be due to harsh or excessive use of the brakes. Any brake fluid leaks will result in an MOT test failure, while the handbrake must pass a certain level of effectiveness to not incur a failure. All areas of the braking system are checked thoroughly during an MOT test, to make sure the car is running smoothly and is safe on the road.

    Failure areas include: brake fluid leaks, excessive wear of brake pads, insecure/defective handbrake.

    Tip: Check the car doesn't pull to the right/left when operating the brake pedal.

  • 3. Lamps, Reflectors and Electrical Equipment
  • This category includes the inspection of front and rear position lamps, direction indicators, hazard warning lights, headlamps, horn, rear fog lamps, electrical wiring and battery. All lamps and electrical equipment need to be checked thoroughly for any faults or defects. There should be no switches or parts missing and all obligatory lamps should be in good working order and positioned appropriately. The car's battery may cause failure if it is insecure or leaking electrolyte, so watch out for faulty batteries and any faulty wiring too.

    Failure areas include: Defective horn, leaking or damaged battery, faulty wiring, missing or dysfunctional lamps and reflectors, unaligned lights.

    Tip: Check that all lights and indicators are working. To check alignment, park the car facing a wall and ensure beams are level.

  • 4. Tyres
  • The inspection of a car's tyres during an MOT test is simple and can be considered in 3 sections; the tyre structure (their size, aspect ratio and if they are fitted properly), their speed rating (whether they bear a speed rating) and the condition of the tyres, which is whether there are any punctures or scrapes and whether they have the correct tread depth. Having suitable and reliable tyres is a good way to avoid failure in this area.

    Failure areas include: inconsistent tyre sizes, incorrect tread depth, holes, punctures or excessive wear to tyres.

    Tip: Keeping your wheels aligned can help maintain the condition of your tyres. RAC Tyres provides reliable tyres that you can count on.

  • 5. Exhaust, Fuel and Emissions
  • Overall security and performance of the exhaust system need to be sound in order to pass an MOT test. Although minor leaks and issues that are easily fixed won't be a problem, so long as the rest of the vehicle is good, an exhaust system can have many issues that lead to failure. You should watch out for major leaks, a missing catalytic converter where one was fitted as standard and whether the position of the tailpipe would cause fumes to enter the car. The spark ignition and fuel system will also undergo inspection.

    Failure areas include: major leaks, missing/insecure parts of exhaust system, inadequate positioning of tailpipe, excessive smoke/emissions.

    Tip: Rattles could indicate a loose exhaust system.
