    Turn ignition off
    Hold trip/odometer reset button - keep holding
    Turn ignition on
    Keep holding reset button until the odometer display does a little 'dance' - should now be reset.

    BTW!

    How long are you holding button for once it does the ------ before you let go?
    You need to keep holding it while it's got ------- on the display until they go away.

    Ah, is that where the brake pedal comes into it? I'd seen it mentioned before but didn't see the relevance as I didn't need to do it when I reset mine (being a pre-facelift).
