Reversing light

My reversing light stopped working, so got a new bulb and removed the ladder to get access. Removed the fixture and got to the bulb, existing bulb was fine, but only getting 4.8v through to the socket. Any ideas? Where to start? 2011 2.4 110 Utility Wagon

You need to change the reverse switch. Not the easiest job due to access, open ended 22mm spanner needed.

Some helpful threads:

Thanks for the advice! Ordered and fitted new gearbox switch. Was relatively easy to access once I had loosened the gearbox tunnel, giving me enough room to get a deep 22mm socket on to the old switch! Much easier to undo than trying to get to it from the cubby box panel. 2011 2.4 110 Utility Wagon

Had the same issue, changed it this morning no problems, the access from underneath isn’t too bad with a 22mm ring spanner, and you can squeeze your hand up to it fairly easy. Definitely recommend this way rather than removing the cubby box etc
