    noticed the other night i had no reverse lights. checked the bulbs today they are fine but since ive fiddled with the bulbs i have that big horrid warning light on the dash too. ive been told it could be the switch.
    does anyone know where this switch is?

    I see that you have a 1.9 with an F40 gearbox so you will find the reversing light switch on the box screwed into the transmission selector lever housing.

    ah right. i was looking iside the car. found it on the gearbox under the bonet
    turns out it wasnt connected so either the garage who done my flywheel last or the garage that done the inlet manifold didnt put it back on. all working again thank god im almost at the end of my tether with this car. strange how there was no fault until i fiddled with the bulbs though.
