Eventually got around to replacing the glovebox bulb this weekend (had a spare in a little bag of bulbs found in shed)
Thanks again for the pic's etc, very useful, also remembered the tip about part closing the glovebox door(??) as won't close otherwise - think its that little bit on the right hand side you need to make sure is in place.
Saying that had to take it apart 3 times, firstly thought the bulb had blown again then realised it was coz the interia lights only stay on for so long!!! (DUH) then once all done i used the phones video to check it switched off etc and it didn't. Turns out the pin switch bit wouldn't stay wedged in place - figured out i just needed to push the inter wedge bit back in proper place (great discription i know LOL) and clips in place fine.
No one mentioned the Aircon pipe though - dam that was a pain in the arse to reconnect - sure i properly done it the hard way but got there in the end with some pointy nosed plyers..
Anyhow - just a quicky to say thanks for the pics etc again.
Glad you got them installed,
good idea with the video on the phone, i must try that myself,
and where does the air con pipe connect as i had the glove box on mine completely detached from the car and never connected any pipe on return,,
have I missed something?
and re-aligning the box is a tough one so many flaps and overlays in the dash,
I also got a scare with the lights turning themselves off when i was installing the second boot light,
I had just connected the power to booth light units, put the first bulb in and light came on perfect,
just as I put in the second bulb on the opposite side of the boot, the lights went out,
I thought I had blown a fuse or something then realised it was the lights automatically turning themselves off after 1 hour.
