Ambient LED in roof light

ADi Nuff Valves Jan 25, 2013

  1. I've got the roof light without the ambient LED in it currently. I've got the LED part but when I took the cover off to drill I noticed I don't have the markers on the back of where to drill the holes. Any chance anyone could do some measuring for me? :friends:

    Have made some approxamate measurements for you in mm

    The unit is 180mm wide at this point so the centre is 90mm so the holes are at 80mm and 100mm and are about 14mm in from the front edge.The holes are again about 6mm wide.A measurement are taken from the outside.

    Hope this helps if not the best thing to do is get hold of light unit with them already in but I guess you went down this route first
    Here is a picture of my led light which I managed to buy of ebay.

    I've seen this LED unit, is it just plug and play?

    Yep that's right just plug and play on rewiring or coding needed,took me about 10min to swap the unit just
    need to pull the wiring loom and alarm sensor's from old unit and place into new one.

    Also good idear to replace bulbs for led ones which give you a brighter light and with ambient light unit you will gain
    the map lights

    The A4 B7 (iirc) interior light fits too!

    I done this on mine ages ago

    The outer cover fits just right, however the inside carrier of the parts are different... Just swop out all the switches, bulbs, LEDs and wiring/copper tracks from the A4 version to your existing A3 interior light

    It'll take only about 20 mins, everything goes in the same place

    They was cheaper on the bay when I did mine but may still be... I paid about £10-£15 inc postage for the whole unit!!
