Espace III help please

Hi All, I have a 99 Espace which as per my other threads has a number of problems. First off, the Speedo always reads 0, it did work when I picked it up 4 weeks ago but now it does not. I had the top of the dash off, cleaded the contacts, checked the wiring etc but no joy. I have read on this forum that the connection at the top of the gearbox is prone to corrosion so I want to have a look there. Can anyone tell me where exactly where I need to look. Can I see it through the bonnet or is it a jack up job?

Secondly, the passenger window went down but refused to go back up. I fiddled and fiddled and eventually switched the connections on the motor, so pressing the "down" side makes the window go up. But it wont go down( better that way). I got a replacment switch, but that has done nothing. So somehow the current for the window is being blocked on one direction. Proved the motor working in both directions. Proved the switch in both directions. Any idea's?

This car has many problems but I am hoping to nibble away at them, as I cannot afford to replace it at.

Thanks and regards, Russ
