It's great that I've pretty much conclusively identified that my reverse light switch is faulty, if only I could get the bastard thing out ... it's in a hell of a position to get any leverage against with a spanner, and getting a socket over it is challenging too.

I may have to buy a ton of extra socket attachments just for this one little job.

Also why does there seem to be a gap in a lot of product ranges where a 28mm socket would go?

Oh, maybe there's an exact imperial match ...

Shifted the bastard reverse switch with the aid of some new big and heavy tools. Cleaned it, checked the contacts, gave it a tap or two and it still doesn't work.

So, time to order a new one I guess. Can't think of any other options.

Woohoo! New reverse light switch came in, I installed it, all the lights light up when they're supposed to now!

I diagnosed and fixed a car thing!
