    Thats an oil can not a spanner iirc. Have you checked your manual to correctly id the symbol just to make sure? If its a fault light then you need to get the codes read. hth
    Now I need a turbo to keep up!

    Is the spanner in an outline of a car? If so, this is engine electronics.

    Or, is the spanner over an oil can? If so, it requires a service, but should only light briefly when the engine is started and again when turned off, not permanently.

    I don't think mine displays the spanner only symbol for anything.

    Are you sure? Without getting a manual I thought it is as below?

    Get the codes read.

    Either take it to your VX dealer (take your wallet with you,unless it's got a warranty..on second thoughts,take it anyway),or take it to your local 'do-it-all' garage.They'll find the problem using their diagnostic equipment for a small fee,but may not have a clue as to what the 'real' problem is.
