Rimmers headlight switch

I replaced a faulty headlight switch with one I purchased from Rimmers. Upon installation the shaft of the switch is too long and the off / park / full label doesn't line up with the position indicator. Have I purchased the wrong part? It stated it was for a 2000 TC.

Oil to use

I have a discussion going on with a mechanic that does some work on my car. I purchased Penrite HPR 30 20W - 60, he said I should have purchased a 20W - 50, is the Penrite wrong for the car?

Re: Light switch not connecting

Thanks for your reply. I have had a look at the manual but can't see how to get the round knob off, and get to the switch. Do you have to take off the steering surround?

Light switch not connecting

Hi - went for a WOF (MOT) today. For the first time ever the lights wouldn't go, I moved the switch around a bit and finally they went. It appears they now have to be in the exact spot to go. How should I approach fixing it? Lose wire or light switch? MkII 2000 TC 1978.
