e46 service reset - no tool

Getting all sort of errors trying to post to some of the other threads out there so having to post this is a new discussion - How to reset
the service indicator from the dash - from our friends on another forum. Two procedures for lights and text version of the indicator at http://bimmer.roadfly.com/bmw/forums/e46/5040843-5.html
In a nutshell, for text version -it appears to be - with your buttons in the dash by the dials ignition off hold down the left button turn on the ignition 1 - still holding down wait for 5 seconds until you pass the 'test' bit and get 'reset'. release, then hold down again until 'reset' starts to flash release then tap it once.
