  1. Dont be fooled that the boots are anything special for the steering racks. They are SWA gland covers from any electrical suppliers . Also on ebay for not a lot. So, dont believe in this IVA 'kits' . They might make things a glimmer easier to get the car up to spec, but in real truth , all the bits are basic stuff that someone is making a mint for. Just a thought for all future builders.

    Glad you are methodically going through things. Mark will ask how you tested it when you call the factory and you can explain what you have done to check it . Its a good thing to actually have issues in a way, so you can recognise how the car works rather than just bolt this bit here and there. In the real world of driving, you dont have the manual to hand, so its all good education for you and anyone else reading these threads.

    Good idea Gary. Another pair of eyes can spot things that maybe missed

    Yes, go for that. Speak to Ian at the factory and sound panicky !!

    You will need to test the cap vertically as fitted in the car, but you are almost there. Yes, resistance will either show open circuit or closed and show a reading.

    If you have a test meter and put it on the contacts on the float. If the float is down, like you have no fluid, there should be continuity as it 'should ' put a light on the dash. If it doesnt then the switch could be sticky, so try a shaky shake like Steve says. if that doesnt work, then speak to the factory for a replacement and tell them about IVA date !

    Take the two wires off the cap and link them together . This will prove if the switch in the cap is at fault. Also try with a test meter on continuity across the float contacts .

    Does the light come on when the handbrake is on ? They are both linked.
