    Can anyone advise me, please? The reversing lights have stopped working on my 2002 E320 CDi. Both the bulbs are fine, and the fuse is also fine. I don't know what else to check. If anyone has any ideas, please email me at wfcol@rockmi.demon.co.uk. Many thanks... Erik.

    Thanks for your help. I've followed all the links, and the strip-down photos have been invaluable. I'll be able to tackle the job now. Many thanks.

    One last question - I only noticed today that I no longer seem to have kick-down. Any advice?

    Do make sure that the kickdown switch under the throttle has not lost its cap

    Thanks for your advice. The cap is indeed missing. Cheers.
