MOT and windscreen - alapppy
HI
I have a small stone chip ( about 2mm) with a crack about 5mm in total length. The chip is in line with my line of sight. I have been told that this is an MOT failure even if I have the chip repaired Is this so ?

thanks

if the chip and crack can be contained in a circle of 10mm in diameter it should pass the test fine.

I also think you have been told wrongly.

Worth thinking about getting it repaired. If you have fully comp insurance your insurer will probably pay in full with no xs, to avoid a later payout for a full windscreen if the crack spreads.

If you repair, the crack will still be visible, but hopefully less so than before. It should also not spread. If you leave it to chance it may remain as is, or may spread. Changing modern bonded windscreens seems fraught with complications. There are risks of bodywork damage and poor sealing leading to leaks.

I believe I added the htm which is not required. Your second reference points covers where I was trying to direct to.

I\'ve corrected your post anyway. DD.
