    These bits may come in handy...

    Bits for the glovebox light:
    3B0 947 415 B Glovebox Lamp 1@5.50
    1J0 947 561 C Switch 1@2.86
    893 971 632 Housing 1@1.10
    1J0 973 119 Housing 1@1.47
    000 979 133 Cable 5@0.90
    000 979 131 Cable 5@0.90

    Bits for the boot light:
    1M0 947 101 A Boot Lamp 1@5.87
    6L6 867 761 F Shelf 1@5.29 replaces existing shelf.
    1J0 971 972 Housing 1@0.78
    000 979 131 Crimps Included in the above for glovebox

    Parts list above includes all connectors, crimps and other bits to make the job the same as the OE installation. All you need is about 3m or so of 24/0.2 equipment wire such as:

    Maplin order code:BA40T 10m Red 24/0.2 1@2.24 clicky

    Fitting Glovebox light:
    Connect the glovebox light and switch in series and mount in the existing cutouts on the glovebox.
    Connect one end to red/black wire on the interior light
    Connect the other end to GND (bare metal bracket to the left of the glovebox is ideal)
    If the light fails to illuminate when the glovebox is open the reverse the two wires going into the bulb holder. This is due to the bulb holder having a diode fitted making it polarised.

    Fitting Boot light:
    Replace existing rear passenger side shelf with the new one.
    Pull back the carpet below where the new shelf is mounted in the boot.
    Connect one end of the boot light bulb holder to the brown/blue wire in the pink connector.
    Connect the other end to the red/black wire on the interior light.

    If you have any problems post up and ill try and help, if you burn your car to the ground its not my problem though:)

    Great post! Thanks. :clap:

    Re the glove box light.
    Does the lamp have a bulb fitted?
    Do all the bits just clip in?

    :p :lol: :whistle:

    Prices are a 18 months or so old so they may have changed.


    The lamp holders both come with bulbs, at least the ones I had did. I do have the bulb part numbers though...

    The glove box light bits all clip in just pop out the rectangle of plastic at the top of the glovebox for the light. The switch mounts on the rear left of the glovebox. You can get to this by taking the side panel off (like you do on the drivers side to get to the fuse box).

    As I said above:
    Connect one end to red/black wire on the interior light (up the front)

    This is a permanent +12V that has a timeout after a 20 or so mins, so if you leave the glovebox open or the interior light on it wont trash the battery.


    As above:
    Connect one end of the boot light bulb holder to the brown/blue wire in the pink connector.
    Connect the other end to the red/black wire on the interior light.

    Blue/brown in boot loom is the -ve side that gets grounded by the boot switch.
    Red/black at interior light (up the front) is the +12V with timeout.

    :)

    ahh ok so you're connecting into the interior light circuit from the headlining and earthing with the switches after the glovebox/boot lamps....

    I thought you were talking about some sort of plug/play mod where the factory omitted to fit the lamp housings and switches

    no but I'm prolly gonna

    AFAIK just run a wire from the interior light across the top of the windscreen/headlining, then down the pasenger a pillar to the glovebox then install an oem lamp and switch and earth it

    boot light seems a bit too much bother for what light you will get
