Hi

As most of you know there is a small covered panel below the rear air vents. The cover can be removed with a little push however it is difficult to replace once removed so careful if you are doing this for curiosity only.

The fairmont ghia has a small light installed in this panel however the XR does not have the wiring in place (not sure about MKII). I removed the center console etc (see different thread for instructions) to gain a track from the panel to the front passenger footwell light. I piggybacked wires from the front passenger footwell lights through the center console to the open panel.

Ordered the lens assembly for the fairmont ghia rear footwell light ($11.20) only to find that it is only the lens - no light holder. Picked up a trailer light from the local K-Mart ($3.50) and modified the light holder to fit inside the panel (very easy) and attached lens - works great

So it was just the single plastic lens? The EF-AU centre console courtesy lens cost $6.76, I wonder why the price has almost doubled. :evil:

Bayford also informed me that the globe holder was part of the main loom, and did I want to pay $400+ for that...

they are easy enough to put back in i reckon, the cover on my old mans xr6t fell through and i fished it out. Also you wouldn't be able to run it off the footwell lights unless you had premium sound.

well you can pretty much tap anything that works with the doors open, dome light etc.... no need for premo sound.
