I know this has been asked before but also know the regs do change from time to time.

Just dropped my 111R off at castle for a service and MOT and mentioned I've got Schroth harnesses fitted and was told that's probably going to be an MOT failure as I don't have the inertia belts still fitted.

I'm sure I read somewhere that harnesses were OK on their own..

Does anyone know the current ruling with harnesses and MOT? 

Tom, did say he'd have a word with the tester and see what they could do.

Thanks

Steve

Have a look at 7.1.3 and 7.1.4, I think both would apply for an Evora (as in, it had these fitted as standard when it left the factory), but if the tester doesn't know/ believe that then perhaps it can pass. 7.1.6 depends what's happened to the wiring.

Thanks Andy. I suspect reading that it might be a fail.

It's on an Elise 2006 111R, so just had belts and no electronics to monitor them.

I only have the harness fitted on the drivers side so it would be obvious OE was with a inertia belt system.

Suspect I might be spending Saturday morning re-fitting the old belts, which means taking out the seats and the interior behind the seats which was a right PITA with the harness bar installed.

Well that was a surprise. Got a PASS 🙂

Tom said it could have gone either way. Depends how the tester interprets the regs.
