Will properly fitted exhaust bandage (on a section of the pipe itself, not the box) cause a vehicle to fail an MOT. There's no leaks and the bandage is covering a few small holes on the rolled seam of the pipe. The rest of the pipe is sound and the bandage is lock wired in place.
yeah, itll pass. dont mention it to them though, emmisions is your only worry as exhaust is loaded with its own pressure in the test....

I had a hole in mine a couple of years ago, when I first got my car. It failed the MOT test as a result, but the garage applied plenty of Gun Gum and had it retested and it passed. (In the days before this new computerized system)
No need for an apology Steve. I wish I had known about it before an MOT tester failed my old Astra for a small leak in the connection joint between the backbox and centre section. I didn't have any gum gum to hand, so I slapped some Davids/Isopon car body filler in the joint.
