I'd just change the bulbs for the MOT tbh
This. I only got one fail with mine. That was because one of the tyres had fcuked up. Hour later pass for free.I've got a friendly MOT tester. He'd turn a blind eye to things that could happen as you drive out of the test centre after you "passed".
Luckily mine has flown through every year regardless.
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.
No mention of aftermarket HIDs or them needing self levellers or washers.
It doesn't say anywhere in the manuals published by VOSA & DfT (linked in post above) that a reason for failure is not having washer jets for the headlights, all it says that if fitted they must work.I thought the new laws on it were out already , you need the propper projection lenses with washer jets as well ...or so I've heard?
:lol:Only if it was an optional extra for your vehicle on the year it was made. If the FN2 didn't come with Hid's pre 09 and the owner fits an after market kit, it does not one to have washers.
