hello, my reverse light does not work. put new bulb in and checked fuse and its still off. have read on net that the reverse light switch might be knackered. is it easy to get to and replace? if i put car on a jack can i get to it easy enough? cheers

I know nothing technical about cars but could the wire be loose/detached?

the reverse switch is located on the gearbox, im not sure exactly where on your model.

if its accessible from underneath then a jack/axle stands will be fine

My GF has this exact same problem, however hers is a break in the wiring loom near the reverse light... I need to get to the scrappy and get a new bit and solder it on!
