Mot Failed with 2 issues:
1-suspension arm ball joint dust cover excessively damaged so that it no longer prevents the ingress of dirt offside front lower

What parts do I need to buy to fix it?
The exact part numbers will depend on your year, make and model. The optimal repair strategy will depend on the age of the existing components. In particular, for some vehicles it is possible to just replace the rubber dust covers but if the underlying part is "worn", too, it is often more cost effective to replace the component INCLUDING the pre-assembled rubber dust cover. The bottom line is, to do this intelligently, effectively, and at least cost to you, you should request a suspension inspection - missing rubber boots and the responding certified mechanic will inspect what you have, let you know the least costly way to fix it (i.e., give you a written estimate) and then get the repairs accomplished.
