Re: 240 Service Light
I have a 91 240, and there is a rubber plug on the instrument cluster that
you remove and insert either an allen key or a small screwdriver and push
until you feel some resistance, then push for another 1/4" and that resets
the 5,00 mile service light. If you do not have such plug, to remove the
instrument cluster is fairly easy, only 4 screws to it.
Post again, or search the brickboard for more advice.
