Back-up (reversing) lights U/S (Don't work.)

Hi,

1993 240 Classic wagon; stick-shift (M47 gearbox).
Back-up (reversing) lights don't work. All fuses are OK. Both lights failed
at same time. No power is reaching the bulbs.

Questions: Is it possible to reach and check the back-up light switch on the
M47 from under the car?
Is the switch in the same position as on earlier
versions, M40 etc.?
Any other suggestions re the cause of failure?

Thank you.
Andy I.

Yes, it's possible. The switch is on the top cover, pointing sideways,
there should only be one switch and set of wires on your transmission.
Lowering the transmission by lowering the crossmember gives you a little
more room to work.

When did you post it? I'd have responded, but I must not have seen the post
originally.

Thanks James. I appreciate your interest. It was posted 06/10/05 11:54
AM. I was thinking that perhaps my use of "U/S"put off some U.S readers,
but I was trying to be bi-lingual............. :-)
