  1. Will check all fuses, thanks. Definitely not normal dimming - car simply doesn't have this function. The dash instrument lights are totally off, at night I had to drive with interior cabin light on to read speedo hrmm, considering car's low value & age might just live with it as not worth taking to an auto sparky.
  2. cheers guys, Brake & tail lights seem OK. Trailer plug could be the culprit - whats the best way to check / where do I start lol?
  3. Hi guys, Have a BG Legacy and noticed the instrument cluster lights no longer work when headlights are switched on. All backlighting for other instruments like aircon controls, cigarette lighter surround etc still work. As these are on the same circuit I thought the fuse was likely OK, checked and confirmed fuse still good. Youtube clips show there are close to a dozen incandescent bulbs behind the dash, pretty unlikely they all blew at once you reckon? Perhaps a loose connection? No work has been done on dash recently, so I'm stumped why this happened. Anyone experienced similar?
  4. ah nuts! Man, accessing the drain from above is gonna be a pain. Might be easier to locate drain at bottom & blow some compressed air upwards (at half power)
  5. Hi guys, Recently learned how pollen & road grime etc can clog the drains coming from sunroof which leads to water dumping into the footwell and soaking the sponge underlay. After ripping apart interior to dry everything out I ran weedeater line down the front sunroof drains, tested with water and am satisfied they are now clear. Which made me think - are there rear drains too? I tried looking but if they are there they are so undercover at the back they would be impossible to access. Anyone know?
  6. cheers Batbaruman - I do have a multimeter, definetly worth a crack!
  7. ugh.. Swapped reservoir & pump assembly over today with no luck... guessing fault is in the wiper stalk as now both front AND rear squirters don't work. Don't suppose there is a fuse somewhere I should be checking? Did check both engine bay & interior fuse boxes but couldn't see anything obviously labelled / read Japanese
  8. Vasoline is also good for sealing leaking MR2 targa tops
  9. cool - thanks Firenza! How do you test the pumps on 12v yourself?
  10. Ok, so I have the second hand reservoir assembly complete with front & rear pumps. Looking at it as a complete unit I'm guessing it is going to simpler if I unscrew existing reservoir assembly and unclip pumps all in one & straight swap 'new' unit in. I'm thinking trying to pull out the defective pump only might be a pain with reservoir full and risk munting a seal. Any tips or hidden fish hooks to look out for?
  11. cheers firenza! Might have sourced a secondhand one so heres hoping that works out - WOF due in a coupla months
  12. Howdy folks, Noticed recently that the windscreen washer in our BG Legacy wasn't squirting fluid when asked to. I've checked the reservoir and its full and no obvious blockages. Then checked the fluid line going from firewall to bonnet by blowing compressed air thru and can confirm those lines are working. Can't hear the washer going, so am guessing the washer is knackered - seems about right for a 20 years old car! Is there any other tricks to determine the pump is at fault? Also what can I expect to pay for a replacement pump? Cheers
  13. cheers guys for the help, think its all sorted - light now stays off like its meant to.
