    Ambient lighting in the B7????

    I did this about a month ago.

    Took 10 mins and was about £10.

    Forgot to plug my sunroof cable back in and had to take the light back out though.

    I take it that you need the map reading one and not the single perspex type one?

    Ambient lighting looks good. Also, from reading the guide on Tyresmoke, it has the look of a job I can do myself.

    I've just rang Bexley Audi to order the part. It's £12.09 + VAT, so I have to go in and pay in advance. If I can do that before 2pm today, it should be available tomorrow.

    I've ordered the part, and it should be in tomorrow. Ahead of that, though, I thought I'd unclip the covers and have a look inside the cluster, to get an idea of what I'll be doing. First thing I noticed was that when the white plastic cover is removed, it has a small rectangular box clipped into it, to which is connected a wire feeding back into the cluster. I'm thinking this possibly something to do with the bluetooth system (a microphone, perhaps?), because the location of this little box corresponds with a small perforated grill area on the cover.

    Can I safely lever the box out of its little housing? If not, the cover is left dangling by the wire, which will make it a little tricky to drill the two holes for the LEDs.

    Did it ever come from factory with the rear or is this just a retrofit modification? Intrigued to see how this would look...

    Thanks, Bez. I do have OEM phone prep and bluetooth fitted, so I'm pretty certain it's the mic. If so, am I safe to ease this little box out of its housing on the underside of the cover?
