    The lens of my nearside front indicator is missing as the result of some
    unknown idiot in a carpark...
    The indicator itself is still working fine, and is currently protected by a
    piece of extra-strength clear plastic sheet.
    Does anyone know if it will get through an MOT in its current state?

    It should pass if it`s showing amber and no white light, and there is no
    danger to the public from sharp edges. My Volvo had had a plastic patch
    over a rear light for several years with no complaints from MoT testers

    Why not simply take a trip to the mot station and ask them if they would
    fail it. That shouldnt cost anything just for an opinion, and you will get a
    far more accurate answer than anyone here can give you, sight unseen.

    Alternatively, why not just buy another lens cover.

    In message _wajj.81862$,
    Fair comment. I'll try an pop into the nearest MOT centre at the weekend,
    and get an opinion...
    Sadly not a case of just fitting a new lens cover. The impact was quite hard
    (I guess) and has caused some internal damage to the brackets etc, so
    probably needs more work than just a lens...

    I'm lead to beleive that they just have to be secure and show an amber
    light. One of mine was made almost enitrely from coloured fibreglass
