    Default Installing sunglasses holder

    Hi. I've just bought a CDTi and am looking to install a sunglasses holder. I've looked through the How-2's and there's not one listed, so I'm assuming it's a dead simple job... however just wondering before I'm let loose with a screwdriver if anyone has any hints as to how the blanking plate comes off?

    Also, probably going to install the 4-button interior light at the same time, however, with no how-2 for that either, would appreciate any help/gotchya's. Or is it really too simple to be worrying about?

    Cheers.

    The sunglasses holder is really simple, pop the blanking plate out and push the new holder in. not sure about the switches, i haven't done them.

    Not sure if it have rear lights, never noticed. I was under the impression that the 4-button light gave me a map reading light each side and a way of disabling interior light when the doors are open. How come it's not worth it if I don't have rear lights?

    in the 3 button you have two map reading lights and one for turning interior light on/off. It was my understanding that the fourth button disables rear interior lights for police taxis etc...

    Ahh. ok. Thats interesting. I was going with this post that suggested the buttons were as follows:

    2 for reading light
    1 for turning light on (when door closed)
    1 for turning light off (when door open)
