It just pops off, you may have to apply a bit of pressure with a screwdriver.
Be aware that the light control switch will drop out so take care not to lose it.


I do have an original ambient light unit available at present, I was going to put it on ebay but can offer it here for £20 plus postage.

!!SOLD!!

I've found wiring in some LED strip just below the switch panel/above the ashtray 'garage door' gave much better lighting effect around the gearshift area than the submarine lighting LED's. Maybe different if you're able to raise the lighting output compared to Ford's original set up.

@Stoney871: Thank you for the info, indeed "a bit of pressure" was the unswer :)

Now, the ambient lights are working like a charm. :rolleyes:
