Definitely the handbrake lamp?... it's not the brake warning lamp because the clutch/brake fluid reservoir is low?..and that maybe the clutch slave cylinder leaking.

Handbrake lamp doubles up as a low brake/clutch fluid level warning indicator.

The fluid level sensor is probably faulty then. It's a "float" in the cap.

New pads. I did think of the pad level wear sensors and dodgy connections but the warning light would be less consistent

Been pretty busy with it recently!

New lower wishbones and ARB links fitted- what a difference!
Stripped seats and carpets out for welding, had both rear footwells and sills done, they were pretty bad!
Waxoiled inside around new plates and underneath.
Removed skirts and cleaned out a shed load of crap, ran a line of waxoil down the sill.
Whilst the seats were out I did the conversion to remove the seat height adjustment mechanism, all I can say is I wish I'd done it sooner, the position feels perfect now, you sit IN the car instead of ON it!

Naturally I took it out for a blast whilst the interior was stripped out! coolio.gif whistle.gif

Pushed the nsf indicator back in again, freebie pops it out if i reverse with left steering lock....

And tried to figure why the red one fogs up so much.
