    Hi ( hope ,as a relative newbie , I'm in the right place here ....)
    Just replaced a duff heater blower resistor, which wasn't as hard as I thought (& as it aint stopped raining up north for a while, I've not checked the fuse yet . )
    But ... Its not fixed the problem , anyone else had similar problems ?

  • Here's a tidy boot light upgrade I've just finished. Bit of a 'workshop quality' bracket but perfectly serviceable, ( a cardboard template is recommended.)
    ( remember these are ' handed ' if you fit 2), & the folded bottom edge is optional, but reduces the risk to fingers from sharpish edges.
    I used double sided tape to fix the light units, easier than creating a mm perfect slot in the bracket.
    I used an alloy finger plate from a screwfix ( other shops available) , cost about £3 ... see pics for guide on size , use the hole in the boot frame to bolt to ( pic2).
    Sketch in pic 1 show rough size guide and aperture might vary with different lights. Thin alloy is easy to work with a file ,drill, & a grinder.
    Bit fiddly getting the bolt in without dropping it , but fingers can just hold on long enough to bolt up.
    Buy yourself a pr of number plate lights (led) for about 8,10 quid. Reroute the cable through the boot lid ( bit fiddly) , to the boot space , leaving sufficient slack for closing . Zip tie any wire safely to hinge arm with other ducting. Attach / extend to the existing light terminals , insulate connections properly .
    Fit 1 if you want , but 2 are really bright,. Front boot with leds' will be next project.
    Led , obviously much brighter ,but the light is also nearer the stuff in the boot ,not 2ft in the air in the lid.
    Verdict : couple of hours , several coffees, & decent effective result for buttons...hope the pics & description make sense.

  • TF boot lid ...All fitted
    ( minus the bits I don't want to be oversprayed ) but Ready for paint now .
    'Sadly' it was the exact BRG colour , but with a couple of slight dings, (which whilst reflected in the bargain price ), means it requires a spray over.. heh no . - but eventually got the high line brake light removed in 1 piece, & booked on to the paint shop in a week.

  • Nearer the floor obviously in the base of the door .. but I thought easier cutting in the door card & led lights are bright enough for the slightly extra height ..cheers.

    Here's an easy ish upgrade .. few pics to assist , fit puddle lights, I included a ( 'doors open' ) red light too while I had the door card off .
    I used number plate illumination led lights for puddle lights , off flea bay for 5 or 6 quid, & a couple of round red lights from same source.
    Carefully cut an aperture into a desired position in the door card - rear side of the grab handle offers plenty of space ( repeated careful cuts with a Stanley worked for me), similarly with the red lights ..as wide as you can really ..make sure there is enough clearance behind the door card & the fitting is not fouled by the metalwork of the door itself, or you will have an unwanted hole in your door card.
    Piggy back the connectors ( see the pics)from the footwell lights & run the wires around the footwell ,tho ugh the door trunking duct with a wire 'fishing' device and then behind the card.
    I found it easier to go from the door to the footwell with a wire & pull the cable back .
    Wire up like pole wires ,insulate properly and refit the door card after a brief test .
    When the doors open the lights all come on together.
    Good luck
    Easy peasy really ..slow and steady is the order of the day.
