    I'm sure I can cope with that till I can find a tame mechanic with the right gear to turn the spanner off.

    Or failing that, drill a hole in it so some of the gas still gets through. Just increase the hole size until the EML light doesn't come on.

    I bought the blanking plate with the 8mm hole in the centre works fine .The very odd time the spanner light comes on . I may make the hole bigger in the future but the light dont bother me as it turns off after a few starts .

    Stops exhaust gasses being recirculated into the engine and dragging oily soot with them!

    If I've got this right, the warning light is just a light with no other side effects (eg, limp mode) so provided I don't mind putting up with that it can stay on until I get the engine remapped?
