    This weeks problem.....no reverse lights! Any ideas?

    Only way really of checking is to bridge the connector with a split pin briefly. If once you stick a split pin across the terminals on the connector you get lights then sure as hell its the switch.

    Help Required wet A pillar trim

    I had this issue, the car had a replacement windscreen at some point in its past and the installers scratched the paint, exposing bare metal, this turned to rot and eventually the sealant/bonding lifted and water ingress occured, that's the theory on my car anyway lol
