    I believe you can access it from a hatch under the back seat. It should be in the top of the fuel tank

    Ive only just noticed but my speedo is also not working and the handbrake light is permently on :S my rpm counter n engine temp works. Would it be worth just getting a new set of dials or would this not fix the problem.

    The speedo is manual on MK3's and earlier so doubt thats linked. Handbrake light could be low brake fluid

    I can't say for certain if new clocks would fix it
