    Mine does.
    They switch on when you slide back the mirror covers.

    the lights on mine are on the roof lining above each sun visor and when you slide back the cover of the vanity mirror they come on.
    are these the lights ye are on about?

    Ahh, got you.
    B5 pre-facelift sun visors for you then.
    I think there is a couple being broken.

    Just make sure the width between the mounts are the same.

    I think they run off the same set up as the centre light.

    You've given me an idea.
    If you can wait a day or so, I might be able to sell you mine with the LED bulbs.

    I quite like the idea of roof LEDs above the visors. That pic you posted looks proper good.

    Above the mirrors seems ok but you can't beat the lights around the mirror.
    They work so much better.
