I have been sent a mod and it had a few issues that i have now fixed but i am getting a warning for this any help?

Invalid index for 'vehicle.cylindered.movingTools.movingTool(0).componentJoint(0)'

<movingTool node="1|0" playSound="true" >
<controls axis="AXIS_FRONTLOADER_TOOL2" invertAxis="true" mouseSpeedFactor="0.15" iconName="TOOL_OPEN_CLOSE" />
<componentJoint index="1" anchorActor="0" />
<rotation rotSpeed="200" rotAcceleration="450" rotMax="0" rotMin="-60" />
<dependentPart node="1|1"/>
<movingTool node="0>1|0">
<dependentPart node="0>1|1"/>
<movingPart node="0>1|1" referencePoint="0>1|0|0" referenceFrame="0>1|0|0" playSound="true">
<translatingPart node="0>1|1|0"/>
<hydraulic template="DEFAULT_HYDRAULIC_SOUND" linkNode="0>"/>

What do i need to do?

You have the <movingTools> entry twice. The second <movingTools> is ignored by the XML parser.
In your code above end tag in line 9, start tag line 10.

still the same issue. Would you mind copying and pasting the above with the correct code, just in case i am doing it wrong

Maybe a stupid question but do you even have a componentJoint defined within <base><components>?

Look at the error. It says 'invalid index'. AKA some node is indexed in a format that the game engine can't read. Indexing is always done like this:
'Root > child | child | child'. You put all your indexes like this 'child | child | child'
Shouldn't this movingTool node="1|0" be movingTool node="0>1|0" or movingTool node="1>0"? Look in GE at the node index and just copy paste it. Same idea applies to the dependenPart node.

Also the second <movingTools> tag, the one Bilbo pointed at, seems completely reduntant to me. I think you can delete it.

For normal index that's true but not for those componentJointIndex or even inputAttacherJointIndex.
They are only "counted" beginning with 1 (in FS17 with 0)

So if you have 4 componentJoints, they would appear like this in movingtools

<componentJoint index="1" anchorActor="0"/>
<componentJoint index="2"/>
<componentJoint index="3"/>
<componentJoint index="4"/>

See example
