HID lights don't need headlight washers fitted mate - it says that they "may have such systems fitted and where they are fitted they must work" - so if you haven't got them it isn't a fail

Information

Vehicles equipped with High Intensity Discharge (HID) or LED dipped beam headlamps may be fitted with headlamp washers and a suspension or headlamp self levelling system. Where such systems are fitted, they must work; however, it is accepted that it may not be possible to readily determine the functioning of self levelling systems. In such cases, the benefit of the doubt must be given. Headlamp washers may work in conjunction with the windscreen washers (when the dipped beam headlamps are switched on) or by a separate switch.

Method of Inspection

Where HID or LED dipped beam headlamps are fitted, switch on the headlamps and check the operation of any headlamp levelling and cleaning devices fitted.

Reason for Rejection

A headlamp levelling or cleaning device inoperative or otherwise obviously defective

As far as I can see this is only a fail if they are fitted - I can't see anywhere in the latest manual where it stipulates they must be fitted? But I am not an MOT Tester, but that could be easily challenged in a court of law no problem - If they've intended to make it mandatory for cleaning & self-levelling systems on HID headlamps they've left it unenforceable.

Oh well - mine come as standard so no worries for me - but what a bunch of w@nkers they are!! With the price of fuel, road tax and everything else they are trying to make it as difficult as possible to own and maintain a vehicle these days - I can see the point in keeping unsafe vehicles off the road, but at the expense of us law abiding motorists? Tw@ts
