! Guide ! Upgrading The Interior Light
Posted 18 August 2012 - 05:35 PM
The light unit I used has the part number 8a6a-13k767-bb34x1 printed on the side. The light is plug and play but to get the submarine lights working, one wire needs to be added, connected to the dash illumination circuit.
Now everything can be re-assembled and tested.
A scotchlok could be used instead of a T-Tap at your own risk. Personally I think they are the work of the devil and are responsible for many electrical problems and have even been known to cause vehicle fires. The T-Tap provides a much more secure connection and can be easily disconnected when no longer needed.
Another product I highly recommend is a Posi-tap but these are harder to find in the UK.
When all done, the submarine lights should come on when your lights are switched on and should look something like this:

If the light seems wedged half in, half out give the other side a bit of a pry with the screwdriver too.

This is more than I anticipated. Very hefty price tag just for a interior light.
By the way, how do you know that this fits Fiesta? Does anyone know all or some of the Ford models that share the same style interior light that would fit to fiesta and have ambient lights. Before forking out these £80 I do want at least try to find bit more affordable option. I wouldn't mind buying a second hand one. Maybe I can use findapart services or something like that or keep hunting on ebay.
Was yours also Ford Galaxy's interior light, how did you know what to look for?
Thanks for the feedback so far. As I'm very new into modding I do appreciate any help that I can get.
