The OBC issue has now been rectified witha mini circuit board complete with two small lamps being fitted .
The S.I Board issue is not so straight forward , as the original Varta rechargable batteries are attached by tabs soldered onto the board and are not easy to remove .
I have purchased replacement rechargable batteries with tabs and am concerned that the circuit board could be damaged if overly brutal methods of removing the existing batteries are employed .
I believe that the old tabs should be removed by heating the existing solder holding them in place before resoldering the new battery tabs onto the board .
If any alternatives are better suited , suggestions would be appreciated .

Meanwhile , there has been a small fuel leak from the rear offside wheel arch area when the tank has been totally filled recently . After inspecting the fuel tank , it became obvious that a new tank was required and this was fitted today .
Pic of old tank which was leaking from around the base of the 3 breather pipes and just to the left of the filler neck . The new tank was liberally coated in Hammerite and the filler neck area in underbody sealant prior to fitment in order to prevent a reoccurrence in the near future .
