well i thought about leaving them alone, but having a mess with them, got the better of me.

i took the whole unit apart, i had to modify a box spanner by grinding it down,to get the screw out, and saw that the rubber seals where at the bottom. i filled it back up to the top with hydrolic oil , and pushed the seals back in.
with it having new oil in it, i had trouble getting it pushed back together, but managed it with some mole grips.

i screwed it all back together, turn on the head lights, turned my switch for the lights, and HEY PRESSTO!!! it work..

so by having a mess and filling it up with oil , saved me a bit of money buying a new one. and only took me about 3

but i just wondered, its set on number 3 now, and if you turn it down to number 2 , 1 , or 0, then the lights go up.
is this right, because i would of thought it worked the opposite way around.?
