it was tight on the feeler not a nice slide feel but the three lights on my dash still havnt gone out

When I fixed the ABS on my discovery it still needed test book to turn the lights out.

I know that Dealers have a reputation for charging through the nose, but they do have the appropriate test equipment to plug in the car and complete a diagnosis. And you can ask that be all they do. There may be a number of possible faults, each of each will need checking or eliminating, rechecking with test equipment, and if all is ok, the warning lamp will be de-activated as a part of the final check process.

But because there are a number of possible causes you need the system checked. If any action through driving happens to make the warning light go out that only means the light has gone out, not that the fault has been rectified. And being part of a safety system I recommend you make use of a Dealer asap.
