Here is a photographic guide to help you change the colour of the Ignition Illuminator on your BF MkII XR6.

Here is a link to the globes I used from eBay. You need a T4 Wedge globe.

Starting with the stock orange light you can see here...
Image

Under the steering column you will see 3 screws, philips head. Remove all 3 of these.
Image

Now the bottom and top halves will separate on the column and you can completely remove the bottom half.
Image

You will need to unplug this power lead. (you can do this first or second)
Image

Here is the screw that will release the housing so you can proceed to the next step. Again philips head.
Image
Image

Now you will be required to remove the following 4 clips to open up the housing. This is a bit tricky but it will help with a flat head screw driver.

Here is the T4 Wedge Globe, using a flat head, twist and remove.
Image

Replace with your desired colour LED

Now return to the car and plug it back in, test. Once confirmed it is working, place the housing back over the ignition, screw back it in and replace the steering column cover, screw in and ensure the top half is in the correct place.

Shouldn't this sort of thing be in Technical Documents?

It's a good write up but I just thought that was where all this sort of thing was supposed to go?
