Bad CV boot, inspection tomorrow

Will it fail?

Found the split CV boot (cover?) today changing tires (tyres).

Will they fail it for that? If so, then I immediately cannot drive it, eller? I can fix it myself in the next couple of days, just not time before the inspection with Bilprovning tomorrow.

You normally have 30 days to fix most problems.

You may possibly have to face a re-visit to get it passed, at a fee of course.

But is that a fail criteria?

I've been inspecting and fixing cars here for 5 years, just don't know if they consider that a fail item. Didn't find a comprehensive list online yet.

I think it is, if it's just the rubber type, stuffed with grease etc. can you free it, turn it round so the split is upper most and not visible, then refix?

Nah, they rotate with the shaft. It's split. Gotta fix it anyway. I'll find out in the morning.

Passed, utan anmarkning. Just a 'bra att vet' for the hosed CV boot. Makes sense, I guess.

Yes, if it does not affect road worthiness they don't care much.

kinda sorta. I've had the wagon failed for not having an antennae screwed on to the little threaded shaft, and if you cannot attach your detachable trailer hitch, I think there's a fail on that as well. At least they always make me show that it functions.
