#170993 Illuminated Ignition Ring.

Posted by Barry_ on 06 March 2012 - 05:08 PM

Awesome little mod this - hate not seeing the ignition slot when its dark - suppose LHD cars face inside so ford never thought this would be needed. Don't help that there is the gap around the barrel - in the dark and you stick it in the wrong hole :blink:

Going to have a proper read of this thread tonight and see what i think.

Nice find

Fair cop - surely you can see the light strip on the front of the dial though and know that feet is 6 o'clock etc???


Also bud - not sure if you seen the updated link but these are 12 new delivered so think you might struggle getting 20 for them.

#148842 Guide To Fitting Mist Type Jets On Your Ford

Fitted mine over the weekend - Cheers for the guide in post 1 - piece of cake to do..

Got to say mine are not too low, slightly low but get good coverage, gets the side windows slightly too like Haylo - but this is just tested at stand still - maybe even better on the move.

Seemed to get a lot of excess fluid on the bonnet though - just cleaned and polished the car before i tested them and it had a nice water run down the bonnet!!!

Great little upgrade - better than the jet ones which i often end up blocking with a snapped needle when adjusting LOL

An hour!!!! Christ didn't think i took that long!!!

Lets see what u got - newer mark 2.5 Style trim?? Not sure if you got aircon to glovebox - you might have, easy spot though (if its the same)

Look in glovebox and on right hand side wall i got a twisty plastic vent which twists to open and close - pipe fits to the other side of that - just slot on - no clips or anything - When u remove the glovebox is just slips off so you could easierly not even notice it.

Any idea what the weird moulded vent is at the back of the glovebox? (if u got one) I guess its just a vent to get some airflow in there (unless its linked to the aircon - there to vent out or something)

Eventually got around to replacing the glovebox bulb this weekend (had a spare in a little bag of bulbs found in shed)

Thanks again for the pic's etc, very useful, also remembered the tip about part closing the glovebox door(??) as won't close otherwise - think its that little bit on the right hand side you need to make sure is in place.

Saying that had to take it apart 3 times, firstly thought the bulb had blown again then realised it was coz the interia lights only stay on for so long!!! (DUH) then once all done i used the phones video to check it switched off etc and it didn't. Turns out the pin switch bit wouldn't stay wedged in place - figured out i just needed to push the inter wedge bit back in proper place (great discription i know LOL) and clips in place fine.

No one mentioned the Aircon pipe though - dam that was a pain in the !Removed! to reconnect - sure i properly done it the hard way but got there in the end with some pointy nosed plyers..

Anyhow - just a quicky to say thanks for the pics etc again.
