Just checked my car and it doesn't have anything, no bulb holders, wiring, nothing - cheapskates.

It sounds like it's completely random whether your car has them or not.

Interesting thread..

Thought the interia footwell lights were a std feature on the zetec models so fairly surprised to see a few people with zetec climates having to stick the bulbs in for this. Dam even my 13 yr old escort has these.

Like the sound of swapping exteria bulbs for LEDs - will look into this when i get my new motor.

Fitted my Red Led's in the front, not as bright as the clear white i took out but red now matches the dash lights.
In two minds about my red led strips i brought for the rear , fiting them under the seat would mean attaching them to the seat some how , down side would be moving seat back and forth could damage the wires long term.Not many other places to put them so i may just forget about fitting them. I could fit to the front to make it brighter.
Tried getting the bulb holders out to get better access , but wow they are either very tight or glued haha , so for now just gonna enjoy my new car for a while before i start messing with it.

hey pree, i fitted led strips for the rear footwells. on the bottom of the front seats is a metal pole, which is a perfect place for the leds to stick to. also running the wire down and under the guide rails and into the center console is a good place to start to protect the wires lol like i say i have done this and have never ran into problems in my peugeot or ford with damaged wires etc. only thing i have done tho is used loctite super glue to reinforce the sticky bit on the leds...kept on peeling in the cold weather.

JohnH
I was thinking of getting some more strips but run the wire's along the side under the trim and have them at the side , each rear door.
I looked at putting them under the seats but as the red led replacement bulbs i brought were not very bright i put the strips there as well.

I have also thought about some bullet Led's i have seen in halfords that i might place on center pillars between the doors , they are directional and i could aim the into the rear space.Also the prism red lights x4 look good 7.99.

It would be nice to get hold of a matching courtesy light same as front , "but without alarm sensors" as that has the ambient lights in , but i think the angle would be wrong to shine the lights downwards. To replace the single light in the back.
