How did you remove the bottom of the three inserts from the steering wheel? Interested in doing the same mod, had a quick 2 second look at them and the side 2 seem to pull right off but the lower one wraps all the way around?

The bottom one is two parts.
Pop the rear bit off and the front one just comes off with a bit of flexing.
Be aware that the rear bit has a plastic tube coming out of it to clip into the front bit.
A wide bladed screwdriver with the tip taped over is a good tool to have handy.

Next phase done at long last, finally got my footwell lights fitted.
I've only got some weedy white LED in at the moment as i forgot i used my decent blue ones in my courtesy lights.
I'll pop on some photos later when it's dark and update when i get some decent blue ones fitted.

They are a tad snug.
I think i'll look next to Zetec black reflector headlights and LED tail lights just to keep the dark lighting theme going.

For 2quid these serve the purpose quite well inho

http://www.ebay.co.u...#ht_2878wt_1186

They what I got in in the photo's before I installed the ignition barrel so if you go by them they spread the light quite well

Replaced them with these

http://www.ebay.co.u...984.m1439.l2649

Waited a literally month for them to come from china, the delivery was actually that long. Only to find that because there's so many more LEDs, they half the size of the LEDs on the 5smd and less powerful, which I could tell from the photo but still, considering they got 23 extra lights on them I've noticed no difference in light in the front footwells and really wasn't worth the wait.

just saying for how long i waited for the 28smds to come from china cause i couldn't find a uk seller of the blue ones anywhere, just white ones, wish i'd of just kept the 5smds in cause they just as bright n spread it the same.

so for 2quid the 2 n a few days wait instead of a months wait you can't go wrong ;)

have a look at all these listings

http://www.ebay.co.u...led red&_sop=15

as long as its a 36mm it should do the job

this one for instance seems to be the cheapest n is a uk seller. should do the job nicely
