You may need to clean the "door open switch". You'll see it in the door shut. This pushes in when the door is closed and when the door opens, causes the interior lights to come on

Insurance companies will write anything off these days - the mrs had a mazda 3 that got wrot off by me doing 20mph comming to a stop and hitting a know in a clapped out filthy french 305 with no breaklights or reversing lights (cos he was going backawards aparantly) and im to f ing blame but the car only needed a bumper bonnet heatlights and a radiator they thought i would cost more than 5K could have done it myself for 300 notes


if it is a write off ask how much it will cost to get sorted and how much there offer is - if you think you can get the work done yourself cheaper id go for that except of course the the CAT C (the dreaded hit list for cars)!

its a shame when the insurance companies want to right off good cars. presumably because the cost of repair is based on all genuine parts?

the other annoying thing, reverse lights are not mot testable so in other words you dont need to have them...but you need number plate lights. i think i know whats more important
