    Rust - like this - how bad and does it pass MOT?

    Rust - like this - how bad and does it pass MOT?

    2007 Accord fails to start

    The resting voltage of the battery should ideally be no lower than 12.6V. Bear in mind that when a battery goes down to 12.2V it's actually only 50% charged, and below 12V it's classed as discharged.

    Rear Upper Track Control Arm on Tourer

    Looks like a good find that. Not sure I'd be attempting bush replacement at that price as it's a ballache without a press

    Boot problem.

    Could be a fault with the locking mechanism then. Fuse #21 in footwell also worth a check.

    Boot problem.

    Could be a fuse. Have a look at this thread with the fuse list. Don't know your model but suspects could be #41 or 42 or 7 further down in the other location:
