Guide To Fitting Vanity Lights?

11 June 2014 - 07:05 PM

Can anyone point me in the direction of one?

 

I recently bought a couple vanity lights (ones behind the sun visors) and I assumed they wouldn't be too difficult to sort out, (I'm naive as well as ignorant when it comes to cars). I am struggling to work out how to do it/where to get the connectors from etc..

 

Just wondering if anyone had a detailed guide or something as I really am completely new to all of this stuff... imagine a child trying to put the square block through the triangle hole and that's somewhat my abilities when it comes to cars...


Wiring In An Aux Jack...

06 June 2014 - 11:30 AM

Hey guys, I have a 57 plate Mk2 with an oval shaped 6000CD.



As with many it doesn't have an Aux plug in in the glove box and rather than forking out £20+ for an Aux plug from Ford and sticking it in the glove box which is; I'm sure, a pain I'd rather wire up something using a small item I bought the other day:

It's a 3.5mm jack in one of the blanking plates.

 
On the front it looks great - It's the size of a 3.5mm jack (naturally)...but when I flip it over you get this:

It's hard to tell, but that is a metal cylinder which is far greater than a 3.5mm jack.. Sooo, I am just wondering if any of you technical wizards on here would know what to do... 
 
In the past I was thinking of getting something like this with a female end: http://www.ebay.co.u...=item45f5824e3d
 
but I'm not sure how to connect up my blanking plate...
 
any ideas?
