    Would also be very interested in this "easy" mod.

    Card trays with illumination go for around 20pounds on eBay, quite a lot for just a missing led

    Any ideas welcome

    on the older 2005- 2008 cup holder there is no led in the front of the door , the led is underneath the mechanism with a little window that allows the light through

    i have pics of the bottom of the tray and surround with the led attached , but cant seem to get the links to work when trying to attach the images

    pity you cant just upload images to the thread directly from your pc

    If anyone plans to sell this as a kit, consider it sold. I'm in.

    Tried doing this mod with a standard 3mm red led today and all I got was smoke :( Does a resistor need to be installed? Any help appreciated.

    What's the AA 017 H49 housing? Can't find any reference to it anywhere. Also, where is the best place to get the other parts?
