Speedo gear wheels and handbrake light

Post by TJS »

It would appear the "hand brake on" warning light in the dash pod has gone missing.

The digital workshop manual refers to a sensor under the handbrake lever but can't see it on RealOEM. The bulb may have blown which means the instrument pod is coming out which means I may as well check / replace the plastic odometer gear wheels at the same time. The instructions look straightforward ... anyone fitted new gears wheels ?

There is a switch at the back of the handbrake lever, under the leather cover.

Very simple connection that grounds out when the lever is pulled. I wouldn't call it a sensor...
