Right guys after a few problems i have finished this mod. I have taken a few pics along the way. Any mods feel free to put into the how 2 section
Firstly there are other ways to wire this mod but heres is how i finally done mine.
To start with i picked up a set of OEM lights from ebay. If you are hoping to get a set from the scrapyard, you will have to take them from a 2002 car as they were only fitted to cars that age. Cars newer don't have the lights nor the loom.
When they were fitted, they were originally fitted into the door frame but i was not feeling confident enough to cut the doors. So i fitted them in the door cards.
Remove your door cards. There is info on how to do this within the forum.
Now cut a channel to house the light. Do this for all four doors
Now for the wiring.
I took a negative from the frame work from the rear doors.
The front doors are hinged on nylon bushes meaning you cant get a good earth. So you will need to tap into the brown wire on the loom (no pic sorry)
Now for the fun bit. You will need to route cables into the car for a positive feed. Heres what i did...
Rear doors... unplugged the loom and drilled out the spare holes and fed the cable through the grommet into the cabin. (long screw driver and tape is needed here to feed wire into the car) You will also need to pull away the plastics on the B'pillar
The front doors are a bit trickier. You will need to drop the lower part of the dash.(driver side) It is held on with 5 torx screws. You will need to remove the headlight switch to reveal one of the screws.
Passenger side. you will need to remove the glove box and also the relay module which sits inside the footwell.
Remove the loom plug like the rears and drill out a spare hole. Feed the cable through.
You will need to remove the loom's grommet by taking it into the car then using the screwdriver trick feed the cable through. This can be very tricky to refit.
Now link the rear to the front using a connector block
Also crimp on spade type connectors for the lights and refit door cards.
Now remove the interior light, sun shades and A'pillar covers.
This will allow you to take a cable down each side to meet up with your new wiring.
Now this is where i found out the hard truth of not using a multi meter
I was hoping to find a switched positive in the interior light which there isn't
I now had two options...
1. remove the earths that i had previously wired in the doors and find a live feed on the door loom.
2. Find another live feed which would be suitable.
I went for number two and took the cable right across the headlining to the boot where i found a feed from the numberplate lights which works well
Unlock doors kerb lights come on and remain on for the duration that the boot is unlocked
sidelights on kerblights come on
exiting the vehicle. press boot lock button, kerb lights come on
Any questions just ask as i probably could have documented a bit more of how this was done tbh
