Arnold Clarke Automobiles LtdFake mot pass

I purchased my car from Arnold Clark in Winsford in Nov / Dec 2008. When i was in the office the salesman was very keen and literally threw everything possible at me so i would buy the car. When I returneda few days later to to pick the car up he had suddenly left the company! I had agreed to take the car as all of the things he had offered were worthwhile (free service, extra key, valet before pick up etc..) and when the mot was due I took it back to the same branch though 30 miles plus from my house thought to just go back their as I was familiar with the sales team. The MOT passed with flying colours which was great but this year I decided to take my car to kwik fit for its mot as there is one local to my home. Feeling that i may need a new tyre or something small like that, i was shocked to hear that i need a full new headlamp for the front passenger side of the car! Now the question I asked immediately was "should that not have been picked up on the last mot?" Needing the full bracket means there is nothing at all to screw the main beam bulb into therefore it has never been there but was passed at this main dealers which in my opinion was ignored knowing the cost of the part and knowing the question of who is going to pay for this as i had only had the car a matter of weeks!! Being directed to different people and being told that someone will call me back is really starting to be rather annoying as i would like an answer to my question "why was this not picked up at the time?" The part alone is £140 without fitting so obviously a blind eye was turned so this company didn't have to replace it!!
