Not going to argue cos I know you know better then me but there is a thread around somewhere (been trying to find it) where the guy had swapped his selector switch and lost handbrake release in forward gears.
Renault switch so they swapped it and all well.
Can't remember what car but do remember the thread.
Currently in Dancingdad's garage:
Qashqai 1.6 spark driven, Kia Sedona 2.9 TDI, Scenic II 15DCi 2004 (SORN) not quite RIP.
