    SBC pump fitting question

    Mine hasn't packed up, yet, but I was wondering.......do you need a dealer or Indi with special tools to change the SBC pump? I ask because I have AA parts and labour cover but my local Indi won't do warranty work, so I wondering if any competent repair garage can do it.

    SBC Warning Reset?? good idea?

    On my quest for a e55, ive come a cross a few cars that have had the Sbc counter reset. This worries me abit tbh, Do you think it's a good idea or not,and if the counter has been reset do you still get the white warnings before the RED warning and No brakes (very little) brakes.
