Im getting a warning saying that side lights bulbs are faulty, but they are working fine. Would this be an mot failure
No - as long as the side lights are working. The side light warning indicator is not part of the test.
If youve got one of these warning lights then it must now work correctly: Electronic parking brake Electronic stability control Headlight main beam warning light Electronic power steering warning light Brake fluid level warning light Seat belt pre-tensioner warning light
