    Question Fitting rear interior light help

    Hi folks...

    I have just ordered a rear interior light to install as I am having difficulty fiting my baby daughter's car seat in the dark and also so she can see a friendly face when she's upset.

    Anyway, could someone out there maybe provide me with the following dimensions so I can position the light correctly...
    1. Distance from the rear of the headlining to the light fitting
    2. Distance from the sides of the headlining to the light fitting
    Plus any other advice (methods for cutting the hole in the headlining etc) would be appreciated too.

    Thanks lads, just a bit worried over the correct positioning before I get out the stanley knife!!

    I found the how to for the wiring no bother. I am assuming that ALL pre-facelift vectra's have the metal bracket to position the light to???

    I wanted this mod and so bought what was needed and set about doing it with my laptop close by with the HOW 2 on. Got the roof lining down and searched for ages for the plug to connect to the light and with mine being a 56plate facelift guess what?
    Yep no plug, just glad that I hadn't cut the hole out

    No mate they don't all have a bracket, the trick is to keep the hole small enough that the light is held in tight.

    I made a little template as per the How To and tried it on a spare piece of cardboard before attempting the roof lining.

    I retro fitted the factory wiring as per Oilburner's How To but I believe there is also a How To for wiring in yourself.

    Its a great mod and well worth doing. Mine!
