    Default Interior light help

    My rear interior light hasn't been working now for some time. Ive just had a look now and it turns out my father in law had a look at it last week and has pulled the light out. It appears the strip that feeds the black power plug has come away and also the light will no longer stay in position. ( he's ex army so very heavy handed haha) ive never removed this before so don't know what it's supposed to look like. I think the biggest issue is the fact the black plug is still attached to the light but the thin flat tape like power supply to it is now not attached to the plug. Any ideas please

    Think the ribbin has came out of the socket not sure if this will go back in but its very fragile the rear light I think you have to slide the black bit off the light to disconnect you may need a newe ribbon

    Hiya mate. I've just been out to have a look and the ribbon does appear to be goosed. I've removed the black plug from the light. Is that a major job to renew that ribbon. Also I couldn't seem to even re fit the light back into place as if there's a clip or something missing or broken but all seems ok.

    The ribbon is quite delicate , and I'm not sure if I would even attempt a repair.
    The headlining is easy to drop , and a roof loom would be easy enough to get hold of from a scrapyard.
    So it may be half a day's work , just depends how desperate you are to get it working.
    You could even get a donor interior light from another model car , make sure you get the multiplug connector and some of the wire , and patch straight into the boot courtesy light , if they are not on a ribbon that is.
