great literature! thanks for that

incidentally, my parking break works fine now! I have no idea how that happened though! all I got was an error message on the dashboard after tightening the sprockets on the rear wheels, I didnt know what to do so I just cleared the codes using INPA and now the system works just fine, after I let the car sleep overnight! Seems to me it just needed a 'reboot'!

Thank you for all your help and contributions. This community has once again saved me valuable $$ :P
