    So the 453 Smarts possibly have holes in their king pin inclination angle? Think we need more info on this one.

    Can be a sign of low break fluid, first thing I'd check.

    Just been serviced , but good call, will double check.

    It was only doing it with handbrake on, and at almost any level of handbrake applied (apart from completely released obvs), so iím Still going with the switch itself.

    So what you meant to say it was flickering off when already on?

    Err yes

    It never flickers when handbrake is fully off and has never done so.

    When it did it , you applied handbrake, light comes on and then flickers.

    When you release handbrake, the light goes out....

    I haven’t noticed it recently, I really haven’t sat in the car waiting for something since , but I will try and check tomorrow morning when I arrive at work.
