    Default Rear Interior Lights in Estate

    Hi all,
    I have a 58 plate design estate. I need to put some decent interior lights in the back. Can I just wire them across where the existing ones are? Also is there any way to increase the length of time they stay on. They keep going off whilst I'm wotking in the back of the car. Alternatively can I pick up a Battery feed to wire up a light to the rear power socket.
    Thanks for any help

    Cheers
    Pete

    I think there is a how2 in the how 2 section with details on fitting a rear interior light.

    Thanks for that Frenchman, but the fusebox in the HOW 2 must be a slaoon or hatch as it's different to mine. Any body else got any ideas how to pick up a battery feed in an estate luggage comp?

    Tap off the power in the boot (fused down) and place an inline switch in the side panel, that way they wont go off.

    Cheers Sshooie,
    That's what I thought, but was asking if anyone knows where's the best place to pick up a permanent battery feed on the rear fuseboard?

    There will be a very large 40 amp fuse in the top right hand corner of the fusebox in the boot area.
    You can put a male spade connector in one of the fuse point slots above or below this, and then run your permanent feed into your lighting...remember to use an inline fuse...

    There is definately a thread here somewhere for fitting a permanent live cigar socket in the rear load area of an estate...bear with me and I shall seek it out!!

    here it is..
