Reverse Light Switch

Hi, the reversing lamp on my mk 2 focus 1.6 has stopped working. I've tried replacing the bulb but this hasn't fixed it so i assume the switch must be faulty. Were abouts is the switch located on the gearbox, how hard is it to get to as the battery and airbox etc sit above the gearbox? Any help would be great.

Thanks

Adam.

No, are they common to fail? The odd thing is that the rear wiper still comes on when you select reverse with the windscreen wipers on...

I'd recommend seperating the two parts of the holder and checking all contacts.

(The bulb holder unclips from the wiring plug easily).

If the holder is corroded then you can find replacement ones on ebay.

Ok so i tried changing the bulb holder today and it didn't solve the problem, does the reverse light run off a fuse somewhere? The cars going in for an MOT on Friday so maybe i'l just let them figure it out :P
