Well I have two questions.

My first question is about the BPV. It is making funny noises, but only when I'm going up a hill and I'm at a certain amount of throttle(foot barely on the throttle.). It kind of sounds like a horn is going off. It's really loud.... Is this something that happens with the plastic diaphram of the Bosch BPV or does it need to be replaced?

My second question is about the lights behind the Dash board. The lights behind the tachometer have gone out and now I can't see my rpms when I'm driving at night. It's not really a big deal because I know when to shift by the engine sound of the engine (Remus Cat-Back Exhaust). However it's just really damn annoying. Is there anyway I can fix this personally?

Its called the hooter valve for this very reason, yes it needs replacing!
