Anyway Does any body know how to turn off or reset the spanner light or is it a main dealer who has to do it. The instructions in the handbook dont work as i dont have the button on the end of my windscreen wiper stalk.

Unfortunantly as with most cars made from the mid nineties up you need a computer interface. Tell the system its been serviced so it will go out, but if you don't have one your stuck. If you want you can buy a handset for diagnostics, they are very handy but dont always work with all cars and software. The manufactuirer specific version is a stupid price.
Your left basically with two options, 1 pay the 45 and have them turn it out, which I wouldnt bother with as lets face it its just a light its not going to hurt anyone, or 2 simply wait untill your next service and it will be reset anyway. IE ignore it for a year.

Its not an MOT issue and if someone says it is go to a garage that knows what they're talking about as your in the presence of a Cowboy who doubless will want to chareg you the same 45 for whats basically 2 mins work.
