In this part of Edd China’s classic car health checks video series, Edd looks at classic car interiors and runs through what you need to check for roadworthiness. In this video Edd runs checks on the steering lock, dashboard lights, power assistance (if fitted), as well as looking at the steering wheel itself to check it hasn’t deteriorated over time. He demonstrates how to check for sponginess in the brake pedal and that the handbrake latches securely.
Around 10% of classic car MoT failures are related to the driver’s view of the road, so Edd checks the wipers haven’t perished over time and that new lifeforms haven’t grown in the washer fluid. Finally Edd checks the seat belts and the seats’ structural integrity.
