    Was really easy...just took the vents out and could reach everything I needed to connect them up. I thought it'd be the live that wasn't present, but it's the common or earth that just needs connecting (Brown wire I think) from each switch. Just bared the common wire on the hs switches and the same for the tc switch or alarm switch would do, and connect them up. 1 wire, and it illuminates them and also turns the little light on when you turn the scroller wheel...dead easy, so don't see why yours shouldn't be the same

    Remove the silver strip underneath them by pulling from the left with the door open, and it reveals the screws

    My car actually has heated seats so they light up cos the system is complete. Im nt sure i can make the sport button light cos there is no plug behind it, however there is a plug behind the blank (but not 4 long) 4 tc so how will i b able 2 light it up with no plug? There will b no led in it?

    Mine hasn't got the plug for the sport switch either. I haven't bothered wiring it up to illuminate, seems too much work just to get the light to come on As most of the cantre console would have to come out to get to it
