many thanks to stewart for supplying a replacement, does the steering wheel have to come off to get the shroud off to change the switch?

Many Thanks

Not totally sure on that one Tim, try taking the plastic covers off first and see what it looks like, its easy enough to get the wheel off if necessary.

Steering wheel should come off by undoing the centre nut and bashing it hard with your hand underneath. Its not a good idea to use the steering lock to hold the shaft - as it could be damaged.

Be careful when replacing the wheel that you don't break the indicator cancelling mechanism tongue - wonder how I fount that one out!

OK there easy enough to take off so maybe will do it that way.

Just got back from a little ollyday to see this and just in case you've not done it yet Tim, make sure that when you undo the nut on the steering wheel you leave it on there by a half or quarter of a turn......you won't think it would happen but when you bash the wheel from the underneath just to loosen it a little it will (lots of times out of ten) hit you on the bridge of the nose.....good advice given me by an old time mechanic.
