It has been used for a family holiday to Paris and over the past few weeks been back and forth between Birmingham and Fulham to facilitate daughters move to university. Can no...

Speedometer

Help!

Speedometer and mileometer have both packed up this morning. Everything else is working, so is it a fuse, cable or something else.
