    This is it:

    - Switch off ignition.

    - Press the service button (with spanner on under speedo) and hold down while turning ignition on, display will show
    "Service in xxxxxx km or Service!

    - Now press and hold the reset button (0.0 under speedo) until display shows
    "Service in ----- km or Service!

    And don't forget you have to do a few hundred miles again before the service due in ----- reading will give you an actual mileage.

    HTH :hi:
