No sign of any holder or anywhere for a holder to fit. Such a small thing why have they left that out?!

Dont take this as showing off but this is what your looking for mate see below,
and if your bulb is gone, i recommend purchasing one of the LED clusters also pictured below,
i can supply these if required.

sorry mate mine is a Mk2.5 i saw all the Mk2's in the previous posts and assumed you were looking for one for a Mk2,
my wife has a 06 Nissan Almera middle spec model equivelent to the zetec
and it doesnt have a light in the glove box neither, so it is common in cars.

if you try the scrappy or e-bay you may pick somthing up

I bought something similar off eBay and the darn thing did not work.
Tried both ways round to check polarity and still was duff and one of the wires pulled out when i tried to remove it.

when you get it,
you need to fill the white plug with glue and leave it to set for 24 hours,

this will stop the wires from wiggling around in the plug, once this is done it works 100%
like uncle bens ''perfect every time'' ;)

The one i got had what appeared to be clear sillicone in the cap.
The wire actually pulled right out of it's sheath so it parted from the LED board itself.
Just wanted something that's sturdy and works.

I'm not sure if all models use the same wedge bulbs?
Never looked on my old MK1.
