thanks again Paulo
Just noticed your status about the rev counter and bulb out light, have you sorted this as i had the same problem and it is an easy 2 min fix, order a new rev counter from ebay about 45 quid , undo the 2 screws and pop the old one out, disconnect at the back, replace with new rev counter.it has something to do with a parking light sensor in the rev counter of some ****** which don't actually have a parking light. The ***** garage wanted 300 pounds to fix it , it cost me 45 quid and about 2 minutes. xx
