    Hi my reverse lights will not come on, someone suggested the reverse switch. I am hoping someone can tell me how easy (or difficult) it is to get to the switch

    Ok, no. 15 HERE is your reverse light switch located at the back of your gear box. Straight forward to replace as it just unplugs from the wire loom and screws off with a socket spanner.

    If you remove the reverse light switch plug and "bridge" the wires with a split pin or similar the reverse lights should come ON with the ignition on
