In short, Chizz had a problem with his oil light and found that it was the switch in the block.
After buying a new one, he attempted to replace it and had the unfortunate experience of breaking the switch off in the block. It then cost him R1900 to repair, because the engine must be removed to reach the hole. :shock:

Chizz, don't beat yourself up about it. Bolts break all the time and some times it's an inferior material and not the mechanic. :mrgreen:
