Q: Anti-roll bar advisor on MOT - 10 Months ago

asked by on

I'm looking at buying a VW Golf 56 plate with 95000 on the clock. It has had the clutch, gearbox, water pump and timing belt replaced. The MOT is due in November and it has previous advisories of: brake pads wearing thin offside, and anti-roll bar has slight play in ball joint nearside rear. The cost of replacing brake pads is relatively inexpensive however i'm unaware of any costs/issues associated with the ball joint on the anti roll bar? Could you please explain/advise on the anti-roll bar situation. Thanks in advance.

My car has 95000 miles.
My car has a manual transmission.
