    Unhappy Can anybody please tell me where the reverse lamp switch is???

    Hi , Ive been trying to find the reverse lamp switch as my reverse lights have stopped working, and the fuses and bulbs are OK.

    Ive posted a few posts up, and done a load of searches, but know one seems to know exactley where it is.

    What would really help would be a picture so I can locate it easily.

    can anybody help?

    On the top ish of the gear box bell housing. You need a 15mm to undo it. Dead easy job, take you about 5 mins, and a replacement is only about £5.

    I'm afraid it's not the most photogenic thing in the world, it's tucked right into shadow, but this should give you a good idea. I'm assuming it's in the same place on my box (F17) as the F23....but I'm not certain. I woulda thought they're gonna look about the same though.

    If you squint, you can hopefully see the red labels I've bodged together!

    This one was taken at an angle, the line of the arrow shows you which way is vertical


    Hope that helps.

    A How to?

    It's as easy as replcing a side light bulb, just at the back of the engine near the bottom of the bulk head!

    Disconnect wire.

    Remove Reverse lamp Switch.

    Fit new Reverse lamp Switch.

    Re-connect wire.



    Why does rating the thread make a difference?

    The easiet way i found about getting mine when i had the same fault as you was jack the left hand side up, remove wheel, you can see the plug when you lie on your back under the car. think its a 19mm spanner, just unplug and unscrew it. Its the same one as found on cav's etc so is really cheap. This because the turbo F23's plug is right at the bottom.
