Ive just noticed ( after having the car over a week lol ) that ive got no reversing lights, fues is good, bulbs are good I havent checked for voltage but its a pretty sure bet i'd say that its the switch on the gearbox.

Ive had a little scrat about on the internet and drawn blanks, So... :D

Wheres the switch at and whats the best way of getting to it? Bearing in mind its a mudbath outside and i'd rather not be laying in it hunting about! lol

Hi,
If you lift the leather gaiter around the gearshift lever, It is located on the passenger side, at the base of the gearshift lever.

Brilliant! Thanks very much, im delighted that i dont have to lay in a swamp to sort it lol!!
That would probably explain why its a bit of a tit to get into reverse, if the switch has moved and is fouling the mech.

:D
