The Mondeo failed inspection on too little e-brake holding power(240kg instead of 320kg), and a dust boot on the outer CV joint(knew that one since it keeps crawling off the outer cup), and dust boot on lower ball joint, opposite side of the CV joint ofcourse. The e-brake? Probably just new pads, cooked the ones currently on it several times before i figured out why it would stick on/not release fully.

I have another CV joint boot, but i’m not digging the idea of replacing a lower ball joint(3 rivets to drill out), so probably gonna rummage through the old parts and see if an escort one fits on the balljoint.


The car in the pic? Ford Orion/Escort Mk5. I keep returning to that pic, wanting one badly, but they’re rare. Really dig the small Sierra looks of it however.
