Re: Hazard dash light not working.

The switch comes out through the front. There are two plastic clips one one either side horizontally on the switch which need compressing to release the casing. Once the switch is out unplug the wires, you will see the rocker works on a central pivot spindle which you gently prize the casing over ke...

Re: Seat removal

Hi Darren, The N/S seat will come out with the door on, you need to release it, turn it on the side around the B pillar. Did it with mine when the seat runner sheared and needed welding on the passenger side. Haven't tried it on the drivers side with the steering wheel in place tho ? :scratchheadyel...

Re: Hazard dash light not working.

I had a similar problem and found that it was a broken rocker switch inside not making constant contact.
Have you checked the switch internals as the copper electrodes can break off or bend especially if the switch action was stiff and this would cause an intermittent fault. :idea:

Hi Richard, I also have an original OEW car and went back to white arches when having a full bare metal respray as a principle. On the front arches I have left the lower panel below bonnet rubber seal black though, so when it goes round the back of the wheel it matches up with the inner protection p...

Re: Hazard Light One Side only

Hi Adam,
I had this problem recently on my car and it turned out to be a broken rocker switch inside. One side of the copper contact had broken off after the switch had felt a little stiff, it had just worn out and snapped after 49 years :mrgreen:

Re: Starting engine after lay up

Should the clutch pedal also be depressed as well to make it easier on the engine turning over to build the
oil pressure first ?
