    Vehicle : Vectra cdti estate

    Trim : Get a

    Engine : Dirty diesel

    Year : 2006

    confused interior lights

    i am hoping that some one out there can help/advise me on the problem with the interior lighting in my vectra, i have 1 interior light in the front of my car and this holds a single lamp a blank plate and the sensors for the alarm and that is it, none in the back between the grab handles or the middle of the roof, this is a problem for me as access to the rear of the car in the dark is difficult especialy with a car baby seat to lock into place on each journey, i asked the dealer today and they were unsure if it was poss to do,

    so please if any one has added extra lights to the interior of there car and/or knows part numbers ect it would be very much appreciated,

    Its not all that bad mate, just take your time, don't cut anything till you have found the correct ribbon and moved it well out of he way, also making a template helps with the hole cutting. I say that but would still poo myself if I had to do another.

    Yeah it's not too bad. I've fitted two this week & the cars didn't belong to me. Hardest part I find is peeling back the sticky tape to free the ribbon cable.

    The ribbon should have center dome written along it.
