Where you have the double connector on one side of the light casing touch the new wire to one terminal and then the other one, the one that works with the door open is the right one.
The other terminal will light the footwell lights no immediately as it's the permanent live feed to the on switch of the light fitting.
I'll try to suss the wires and terminals more accurately when I'm home.
Currently running the dogs on the moors.

Believe it will be the terminal laying flat (with arrow) on the left of the photo you need to connect to, check like i said above and you'll know for sure.
If the lights go on immediately without moving switches or with the door being opened then it will be the other one you need.

Ok mate, please do let us know exactly which wire you tap into as when I fitted my footwells i used a feed off an illuminated ignition ring so didn't have to go all the way to the courtesy light.

In your illuminated ignition ring, i believe there was a plug where you could connect it to the courtesy light without the need for altering any cables...

Does anyone know if we can get such a connector to fit to the footwells?

So to confirm it was the one that sits sideways on the double plug side?
Good to know.
