Hi, can you please help?
My 2004 Mitsubishi Colt needs its two outer CV joints replacing as it creaks when turning the wheel, though it does not affect the drive quality. I am having trouble finding the parts as it's a Japanese import. My main concern is will it pass its NCT with the creaking?

It's unlikely that your car will pass the NCT in that state. It's very possible that the rubber boots over the CV joints have been damaged and the car could be declared to have a dangerous defect, which means you would not be allowed to drive it away from the NCT centre. This is a safety issue, not just a noise problem, so you really shouldn't drive the car until you get it fixed.
