I've got a 1999 Mondeo TD (last of the old style) that has just passed it's MOT. However the tester said that the front bushes had started to crack and needed replacing before the next MOT. I had heard that this was a common problem on these cars. He also pointed out that the front drivers side tyre was quite worn
Couple of questions......
1) How much should the replacement of the front bushes be roughly?
2) Could the tyre wear be put down to the bushes? Last year I ran over a house brick that someone had left in the middle of the road. I got my mechanic to look at the tracking etc the week after but he said that everything seemed OK. 12 months later the same tyre that went over it is showing unusual wear. Coincedence?
