Dear Reverend John H: DO NOT PANIC!!!! To remove the indicator, CAREFULLY unclip the small piece of transparent trim - the triangular bit on the indicator/sidelight cluster and undo the 3 screws. You'll find some numpty has connected the indicator and sidelight the wrong way round. Reconnect them the right way round and reassemble in reverse order, again, being careful with the trim that covers the screws, cos these things are prone to crack.
And next time, at least take a proper look at the problem before posting on this forum!!!

ps: I guess I panicked because Alfas are notorious for electrical and cam belt problems and assumed, because I am skint, that this was gonna be complicated and expensive... Incidentally, y'all: I've noticed people suggesting that the cambelt needs a look every 30K rather than the 60K recommended by the manufacturer. Is the 30K interval because of excessive ragging that was not anticipated by the alfa romeo peeps? Mine was owned by a couple of old dears before me, and done at 60K, so I guess I can breathe easy (currently 82K and looking GOOOD - the variator light stays on for 3-5 seconds on startup, then goes out and stays out).
pps: I got an "Advisory" note on the MOT about my discs, which are reaching their sell by date. I'm guessing this is a case of getting the wheels off, removing the calipers and unbolting the discs, so:
1) How much are decent discs gonna set me back? are cheaper ones dangerous??
2) I remember doing this on a Mini, many years ago and it wasnt diffficult. Are there any pitfalls or is this a DIY job, requiring only spanners and a torque wrench?
Now I've successfully fixed a fault on my baby, there's no stopping me!
