would it be possible to change the bulb for one which will only light dim in the first place, then when my current bulb dims, this one will extinguish????i changed my dials today as my rev counter was broken on my old ones. just the new dials wont extinguish the handbrake light. though it does dim down when i release the handbrake. any ideas??
that part is fine, but wjhen i release the handbrake the light only dims, not extinguishescorrect me if im wrong but your handbreak light is ment to be on if your handbreak is on thats the whole idea :0s
yes mate i have done. my old dials read correctly and the light goes out as soon as the hadbrake is releaseddaft question, have you checked your brake fluid isnt low ??
could just be sods law ?
you have two screws on the back sides of the armrest, and two 8mm bolts hidden bellow a plastic cap right below the handle in the front.ahh, this sounds promising, could you give a little more detail or a pic of what bit i have to do. many thanks mate
just had a check on this. doesnt help at all. still stays the same. is it possible that the handbrake switch on my 1.6 is different to that of a 1.8 model. seeing as 1.8s have rear disks and mine has drums. could this be it?you have two screws on the back sides of the armrest, and two 8mm bolts hidden bellow a plastic cap right below the handle in the front.
once you removed them you can lift the arm rest. you'll see only one wire plugged to the base of the handbrake handle, maybe it's unplugged or loose, fiddle with it and see what happens.
