caliper pistons must be fitted with dust seals. ( VSB14 reg 2.7.2 NCOP5 LG )

I argued with an engineer who would fail my car because of this regulation and no external dust seals from photos of my caliper pistons....I told him I had caliper manufacturers document that my calipers are designed (USA) with internal dust seals and better than OEM replacement.. SO SHOULD PASS REGULATION...
engineer wouldn't listen..even for club permit to drive car 45 days/year..

IS there any recourse to get around this ridiculousness beuracratic money pinching misgiving..?? Piston Brake Safety is not an issue here.

this is only one of many ADR regulations I discovered are nonsense..

time to speak up for common sense..!

The chance of finding anyone here who even knows what you are talking about is slight.

Best advice I can give is to find an engineer who knows his stuff and is prepared to certify your aftermarket brake calipers.

Take a look here.

Good luck.

Thanks for reading Citizen....
Ive sussed out a couple of engineers, They dont give much away, and are reluctant to help
unless your going to pay them fees for work or information..? One engineer took half my money because I stopped dealing with him and his narrow mindedness.. he did nothing for me, as I gave him all the info by email, he never saw my car.
