    My indicators have started to play up, they have become very intermittent then they don't work, when they don't light up if I push the hazard button they come on..so why I be right in thinking that the switch needs replacing? How easy is it to do? How would I take the steering wheel off

    Replace the hazard light switch as this has the indicator relays in and is a common fault..

    Roughly £35

    Changed my hazzard switch recently as my hazzard lights were starting to play up.

    Took no more than 10mins. I managed to prise the fascia away then unclip the switch and replace it with the new one. Mine is a 2002 facelift model so didn't have to remove the stereo, I think on the pre-facelift you have to.

    Switch cost £36 from dealers.
