hi folks,

sorry for being a bit of a pain. i was wondering if it was possible to retrofit a dash dimmer control. lets says take my old light control unit out, which doesnt have a dimmer control but replace it with a one that does. if that makes sense?

thanks in advance.

the dimmer is a seperate switch which is linked to dash lights heater control lights the door lights etc etc it would entail ripping half the dsh apart and then sourcing the wiring loom from a car with it and transfer it to youres

I did this in my trusty mk1 and it worked a treat mine must of had all the wiring in place just get to a scrappy find a ghia or zetec or something whip the switch out and take it home n try all i can say to do should only be about 5-10quid

i would think the wiring is all there to "plug and play" as they say. its going to one of those things again lol.
