  1. and just like that they stopped working again! i hate electrical gremlins!
  2. well, this is weird.... the dash lights are back working! In my experience it's not often things fix themselves. Guess I'll enjoy 'em while they are back & sort a fix next time they go
  3. Cheers Jared, will give it a go. Makes sense it is a loose connection more than all the bulbs failing at once. muchos gracias amigos!
  4. 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.
  5. cheers guys, Brake & tail lights seem OK. Trailer plug could be the culprit - whats the best way to check / where do I start lol?
  6. Thanks man - will give that a shot!
  7. 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?
  8. 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)
  9. 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?
  10. cheers Batbaruman - I do have a multimeter, definetly worth a crack!
  11. 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
  12. Vasoline is also good for sealing leaking MR2 targa tops
  13. cool - thanks Firenza! How do you test the pumps on 12v yourself?
  14. 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?
