To reset the C3 service indicator on models up to 2010
(and post 2010 shape - see replies below)

With the 'ignition' OFF, press and hold in the trip reset button.

While the trip reset button is depressed, switch ON the 'ignition'.

Wait for the count down to finish, then release the trip reset button.

Switch off the ignition.

The C3 service indicator has been reset. :)

The manual for the 2010 - new models says to reset the service indicator follow these instructions
  • switch off the ignition,
  • press and hold the trip distance recorder zero reset button,
  • switch on the ignition; the distance recorder display begins a countdown,
  • when the display indicates =0, release the button; the spanner disappears.
Which is the same for previous year models.
