  1. I've seen elsewhere on the forum that the answer to this question is - the switch on the gear box.... But I don't get it! The reversing light doesn't shine. I've replaced the bulb again and again. Checked the fusebox - all fine. Got hte multimeter out and when the car's in reverse, there's 12V into the bulb socket but as soon as the bulb is fitted the 12V disappears. When the live contact is depressed using a plastic peg, the 12V continues to flow but if you use the bulb itself, the power to the socket is cut... How is that the fault of the switch on the gear box?
  2. Had my focus TDCi estate for five months (bought from Dad) who told me the oil level was above max then. We've never looked at it until today - it's still over. Think I should get a complete change?
