Cool

My reverse lights no longer work

Have checked the bulbs and they are fine, and fuses are ok, so I'm guessing it's the switch, but I can't find it. Any ideas where it lives?, anyone?, please?

there is a switch on the side of the gearbox (with two terminals or wires attatched to it) to test the switch, switch on the ignition and bridge the two wires or terminals together, if the reverse lights work then the switch is faulty

You'll probably need to remove the air cleaner to get at the switch
