Pit Passing

Recommended Posts

Hey,

 

Got a yellow sticker 2 weeks ago for a pod filter and loose battery, wont get into details.

I took it over the pits last Friday and it failed due to 2 new issues. ABS warning light and a temp sensor for the CAT was left disconected.

 

I have sorted the ABS and re-connected the sensor for the CAT, im now booked in for another pit visist tomorrow.

 

Just wondering if they can defect me again for other things after this visit or will they just be looking to see that ive sorted their original problems.

 

The car is far from stock, yet no modifications have been done between pit visit 1 and this one.

Also all modifiations are legal.

Depends if they are busy or what not

 

When I failed my first inspection, the 2nd time they just check whatever I failed and passed me (less than 5 mins and i was out of the pit)

 

This is from my experience

They could do, but generally they just check what was on the list from last time. Haven't been over in a few years but *stares out in the backyard*.

 

edit: whoops just saw the timeframe, how'd it go did you get it off?

Yeah passed the second time, no issue.

 

I had to do the second visit due to an ABS fault and a missing Cat temp sensor.

A quick trip to the mechanic and a new sensor bung got me through.

 

The anoying thing was, the original reasons the cop had stickerd me for were in fact not illegal at all. save for the battery being 'unsecure" after he had used both hands to pry it loose.

 

It doesnt do them any favours when they pick on people just to fill their books.

Either way, badge number was reported to the CAC, sure he wont get fired or anything, but it will go in his file.

If he gets a few more aginst him and he comes up for review on promotion he may be knocked back because of excessive miss conduct.

After this, his wife might leave him, for lack of $

 

But yeah,

 

As far as first sticker impressions go, it wasnt as BAD as some stories ive heard.

Yeah mate i had a threaded bar coming up from the IC pipe hole, with a hook on it. And a bracket coming from the driver side fender over to the hook. Locking in the battery.
