Apologies if I've posted this before. Not used to Google Groups, and
didn't see it when I went looking... and as I'm in the middle of a move
from one overseas post to another, my brain is completely fried.
We're getting ready for yet another overseas adventure - this time to
Australia. To that end, I had the UK mechanic that did the conversions
on my 2001 Dakota (you have to do some fancy wiring of the lights to
make a Dak legal in the UK) put his work back. I was quite looking
forward to getting my backup lights back - they're not required here,
but I missed them greatly (they became turn signals).
Unfortunately, when I got the truck back, in a nutshell I was told that
the backup lights still don't work, and they've determined the switch
is at fault. Does this seem reasonable? Is the switch
user-replaceable? I'll pick one up when I'm back in the US (gads - only
a couple of weeks from now!). If it is user replaceable, hopefully the
Haynes manual I hope to also pick up while I'm there will tell me
where, and how.
My truck is on it's own journey now, will meet me at our new home in
late June. I miss her already. All I can hope for is that it makes it
in one piece - getting out here they provided a couple of free dents in
the hood :(
