    2. BA brake light and cruise control problems

      My first post. I think I'm in the right group. No rear main brake lights but wing light is working . Cruise control doesn't work either. Replaced the first switch behind the pedal but still no luck. Do I replace the other switch. Fuses and bulbs look good. Chris

    45. BA MKII Ute - Is this the right tow bar?

      I had a heavy duty Hayman Reece tow bar fitted on my BA ute on Friday, but I think they put on the wrong one. The tube part is very long and sticks out.
