Failed MOT, can anyone help me?

Hi guys,

I own a renault clio L reg and it failed its MOT the other day. I know bugger all about cars so help from anyone would be great.

It failed on:

1) nearside front coil spring fractured

2) Nearside front headlamp aim too low

3) offside front headlamp aim too low


Now I've booked my car in for the repairs for tomorrow but the mechanic couldn't tell me how much it was going to be.

Can anyone give a rough idea how much this is going to cost me?

Thanks

Chirs

I certainly can't help you with prices as I live in the US, but... If you have a cracked front spring, that COULD be the cause of your headlamps being aimed too low because of front end sag. Just some food for thought.
