    easy
    take the cover off
    you will see the 2 marks where to drill
    you will see where the unlt clips in and then the 2 wires you will see the prongs
    off hand i think its a 5mm hole you need

    DRILL???? woah woah woah no you guys dont understand. I cannot be let loose with a drill in my car ha ha.

    5mm, ok i can do that, so the wires are just hanging there? any particular connector i need and do you know what colour they are?

    Thanks. Oh, does the ambient lighting come on with the side lights or do i have to turn it on?

    I read your post mate, not sure what you did but i hope i dont make the same mistake, finding which fuse is the culprit can be a right arse.

    Check your manual for a description of each fuse and its error!

    should come with a set of instructions.. its really simple.. the inside of the light cover even has two circles for where to drill.. its a cool wee mod when driving at night. especially on roads without road side lighting...
