Attached is a picture of the Circuit Board which is under the Face Plate of the Power Window Buttons on the Drivers side, of a BA Futura.

The “arrowsâ€￾ in the Buttons are all “see throughâ€￾, so obviously same Power Window Buttons are used in other models and some of them must have some kind of light/s in them.

Has anyone added lights, (grain size bulbs or LEDs) to this particular model?.
If so, Please let me know what and how you did it?

they might be the same as the AU's. i pulled the bulbs out of a switch from an AU the other day. they are small bulbs with a rubber sort of base that clicks onto the switch. not sure how they'd go in a ba though havent really looked. The high series switches on BA's have lights in them though, maybe would be easier to just get one of thm

The centre pin of each switch should have +12v, the power side to run LED's is easy enough but mounting them so as they dont fowl with the rocker switches is another thing!

I got blue LED's soldered into the window switches of dads XR6T. I have a really good doco on it if you'd like me to email it. We have all the passenger switches done too.
BA Mark 1 fairmonts and fairlanes got the surface mount LED's in the window switches. BA Mark 2 XR's, fairmonts and fairlanes got them too.

What format is the doco in?
I know that if you can upload pictures, so if you take or convert the doco to a picture format, you can just upload it here.
