Auto gear box oil cooler se5a

Many thanks for the replies....I called Nigel and they are no longer available, the pipe work is beyond repair. I have ordered one of very similar dimensions for MGB. Will sort inlet and return pipes when it's installed.

Se5a heater control illumination

Thanks
I thought perhaps the lh (the one not working)by removing the glove box.... but does that mean the dash out first?.....I was not aware of these lights....my last 5a back in the early 80s must have been U/S when I bought the car but it looks a bit odd with one working .
