Under the steering wheel are two plastic screws. Turn them one quarter turn counter-clockwise. Pul the panel away from the dashboard. And your there.

Engine over heating can be caused by a number of things. When you say the water pump and radiator appear to be ok I am also guessing that you checked the coolant level to make sure it is normal.
If the level is low then you obviously have a leak. Insufficient coolant circulating will not cool the motor properly because it won't be able to draw enough heat out. If the level is normal then you need to check the thermostat to make sure it is opening properly. To do this, run the motor to temperature and check the top and bottom hoses. They should both be hot and firrm once the thermostat opens meaning the circulation loop is operating properly. If the top is hot and firm and the bottom is cold/soft or collapsed then the thermostat isn't opening.
If the thermostat is operating properly then you ned to look for some other obstruction or cause for coolant loss. Check the head/intake gaskets, hose connections, hoses, over flow tank, radiator fins, radiator side tanks etc..

Testimonial: "Thank you for your quick response. I will get the head/intake gasket checked."
no i think your problem is the reverse light switch in the gearbox or the bulbs but your dealer is trying to give some fairy story to turn a simple job into a major rewire or something ,either that or they employ monkeys because they only pay peanuts .ask a local mecahnic to check it out for you ,look for a feed to the reverse light switch on the gearbox first ,then if a feed put a paper clip across the two wires and see if the lights come on ,if they do then just renew the switch ,if no Supply then make one ,find fused ignition on supply in the power distribution box under the bonnet and run this to the switch and away you go --- simple .Problem with dealers is someone has to pay the gelled up nancy boys in suits who are so called salesman ,and not forgetting the barbie doll secretaries and the managers free company car .whos paying for all this??

I;m guessing when you say juntion box you are talking about the power distribution box/fuse box located in the engine compartment. These are the diagrams that I have given you below. this should be in your owners manual if you have one. If you don't and would like a copy, you can email me at email@example.com with your make, model and year and I will be happy to email you a copy. I hope this helps and good luck.
