How do I get rid of spanner icon?

I've just given the pride & joy a 60,000 km service-the first one I've done,& I don't know how to reset the "spanner" service reminder icon on the odometer.Will it disappear by itself?I'm SURE most of you know the answer to this one!
Look forward to hearing from you guys.

Hi Phil,

To get rid of the spanner you have to:

Turn the ignition to 'ON' (engine not running), then press and hold the tripmeter reset button for approximately 10 seconds, or until the instrument cluster 'beeps'. It will then appear at 70,000ks etc.
This info is straight out of my EL's manual.



Cheers,

Steve.
