Check your towbars!
I gave my car a check over before taking it for its mot test yesterday.
I noticed paint flaking off the towbar box section between the chassis rails. I gave it a dig with an old screwdriver and found it to be almost rusted through.
I fitted it about 9 years ago, so I can't complain as I never really looked hard at it before now.
Checking towbars is now a part of the mot test, I had to take it off before going for its test. once it was off there was even worse rust at the top, which is inaccessible when it's on, so the tester wouldn't be able to see it.
So I hope all you who use their cars for towing (mine is a 2005 307sw, but this applies to all vehicles) get your towbars checked out from time to time.
Keeping clunkers out of junkyards.
