Some people use what are called T-taps or scotchlock connectors.

Yeah I saw they were the same as what I've seen as snap lock connectors, where you put wire in one said and the wiring your running to somewhere else in the other side of it and snap it shut? So if I put one on the positive wire and then run that to my new bulb holders that I bought for the rear and then do the same for the negative it should work?

Yes.
One live and one earth connection per light which will equate to four wires and four connectors.

Okay, the wires going to the front working footwell lights have a purple and green wire which is ignition live and the other one is I can't remember, so snap one to purple and green wire, and onto say red wire run to New bulb holder and connect on then do same for other side! Should work?

Connect one wire from each of the wires to the existing bulb holders without cutting the existing wires or else you will be sharing the voltage between two bulbs and they won't light up properly.
(yes Brigante I know I did that myself, before you rub it in.)


Lmao I've only just seen this.. What do you take me for :o :P

Connect the negative to an existing negative cable or earh point,
An earth point is a ring terminal like a washer that is bolted to the body of the car with earth cables running from it.

Then connect the positive from the lights to your choice of swith.
Then run a single positive feed from the switch to your piggy back fuse.

Followed by pluging the fuse in to an ignition live source or permanent live source.
Remove the existing fuse
Insert that fuse in to the piggyback plug along with a fuse for the light
Then plug piggyback in place of fuse.
