Hi all,

Looking for a replacement interior light surround (pictured below) for my Mk7:

The little catches on one edge on mine have snapped off when replacing the interior bulb and the plastic cover won't clip back on. So yeah.. need a replacement.
Is my best bet a scrappy? I've tried eBay already and couldn't find anything.

Any help would be much appreciated.

If it's the the standard one from a Zetec-S (ie withOUT ambient lighting) I have my original one left from when I upgraded to ambient lights.

EDIT: The top one

I have a spare one WITH ambient lighting an map lights if you would interested in an upgrade!

On a side note, Nath, where could I mount the B/T mic other than in the roof panel? (I don want to cut the liner for the larger panel :wacko: )

Up to you where it's gonna look least obvious but still pick up your voice. Might have to poke out the top of the pillar that runs up the windscreen?

You could run it out from beside your courtesy light.
I have my parrot mic there and it picks up perfectly.

It's the Ford "round shape" mic that comes with the roof panel, unless I could bodge in a regular mic to the cabling?

Thanks for the replies guys.
I completely forgot about this post and ended up buying a replacement light from FordPartsUK, haha.
Cost me around £20, which is not too bad I don't think.

Interesting seeing these ambient light upgrades though!
Might invest in an upgrade after Christmas. ;)

Breakers, European Parts, Ford etc. You'd need to wire it in though a tap a feed off somewhere.

I wouldn't mind doing this upgrade, anybody know how much it would be from ford or roughly from a breakers. I haven't seen any on auction sites lately.
