    How do I Remove base from Bosch Exxcel Dishwasher SGS45E02GB/45?

    I got the kickboard off & there's a hole with arrow symbols (see attached pics) that look like I need to insert a screw driver & turn to release it. I've tried the normal length one's that I have But they're not long enough o reach whatever is in there.

    Does anyone know what type of long thin screw driver I'll need to buy for this job?

    I'm doing this to replace the Drain Pump

    I also tried to get the side off to see if I could get access this way. But couldn't get past removing two screws at front. Which loosend it , but no obvious way of then detaching it.

    Any other tips to complete this would be greatly appreciated.

    UPDATE
    I got the side off thanks to olldixon & tried the red anti flood switch, this made the drain pump spin.

    Also ran a quick wash with drain pipe into a bucket. Which proved the pump worked during the cycle as some water was pumped out intermitently. However at end of cycle water was still left in machine which I drained again with red switch.

    So my drain pump does spin, so I won't buy a new one.

    But something is not telling it to switch on at cycle end, so I'm stuck again!!

    Anyone with ideas?
