You should politely ask them to...

1. Read the Manual.

2. Provide you with an appeal form.

The Transmission section of the test covers the condition of components - U/J couplings, bearings & carriers etc, and also the presence of locking devices, retaining bolts etc, but there is no failure for the shaft not being there !

;)

Thank you for your reply.
Mine has a blanking plate so I can only assume others that failed didn't.
I was told that new mot would fall it for the prop not being there.
So if my mot center try to fail mine what do I do?

Hi BigDave & welcome.

You are free to remove your spare prop shaft and fit a blanking plate, your vehicle cannot be failed for this modification. Just make are your remaining prop shaft is in good order, with no worn or loose components.

I have a 2002 freelander1 1.8
I know some fellow owners that have issues with new mot rules as the propshaft for 4 wheel or allwheel drive has been removed to enhance fuel economy.
If it's removed and the correct blanking plate fitted is this a fail now??
