The facelift B5 light unit looks like the same unit thats used in the very first link in this thread (which i think is an A3?).

For confirmation, ETKA says the main bulbs are N0177234 "K-12v10W" and the reading lights are N90034901 "T4W-12v5w"

The rear light uses the same bulbs as the reading lights up front. The sunvisor lamps again look the same as the A3 in the first link N0177252

Boot on an avant uses N90841101 "12w6W" and the saloons use a pair of the aforementioned N0177252's

Thanks, i will start getting the pre facelift ones ready on monday, (the sunvisor bulbs) and when the unit arrives tomo from scott i can work on that to provide a bulb for that, the reason i need this is the plus and minus are the opasite way around to the led and cause a normal bulb works either way its not a problem but all bulbs for this unit will be supplied with both connectors just in case.

hopefully i can have all ready mid week and get it posted out before next weekend.

so the roof units in the faclight have a festoon and 2 501 bulbs in each.

if you can help out with any pictures of teh boot light in the saloon facelight and estate light then that would be helpful.

Thanks
Trups

It'll be two festoons and two 501's in the front unit i'd imagine, same as the A3 pictured in the first thread.

I'll try and take some photos of the other lights, but i think my facelift saloon is missing its boot lights, as i swapped my brother for a pre-facelift boot trim.

Hi ,

I'm definately interested in a full kit too for a facelift (1999) b5. My facelift does have foot well lights and also puddle lights on all the doors, dunno if they all do.

Here are some pics that you asked for

Here's some answers and more pics. My facelift (99) 1.8TQS has 2 footwell lights. One either side above your feet. It has 4 puddle lights, 1 on each door and they are all red.

Here are the pics:

Footwell lights (bit too bright with the flash) can do a new one if required

right, here is the list of bulbs for the facelift as its a bit more simple and really close to what i supply the A3 members:

if any are incorrect then please say.

front and rear map lights - ba9s bulb
front dome light - festoon
sunvisors - festoon
glove box - festoon
footwell lamps - will supply my custom designed panel bulb
boot light - 2 x festoon bulbs

pre facelift list will be here tomo once i have got the front lamp unit (supplied by scottB5) to see what options i have and he has also sent his rears upto me so i can find the best bulb for that too.

so if the list can be made for 5 people then i can have the kit ready and posted out by thursday as long as i recieve payment by this time so you can have them fixed in for the weekend.

Thanks

This is something i was interested in, however just been made redundant and need to watch the pennys right now, but would be interested in a pre-facelift kit at a later date if they will be available?

Also, not sure if you know, but the avant and saloon rear lights differ whereas the avant seems to have one single light unit in the centre rear and saloon has one light on each C pillar instead, unsure if bulbs are same thou?

Avant also has lights in the C pillers.
I think they are the same though.

as you can see i have angled the map light bulbs to face wher they need to be when used, center light can be aligned up in the middle, there will be double sided tape under the bulb so you can stick down into place.

to get the map lights in you need to trim down the unit, i used a file and just grinded away, it needs to be 1.5cm wide for a snug fit so i dont move around after, so try do it at 1.4cm instead. the bulbs will come with the cable which i will need you all to plug into the wire (you will get what i mean when they arrive) as its the only way you will get the map lights to work due to the way they are wired (opasite to the way the led wire is)

re: plate lights, how difficult a job is that to do? if it is simple-ish then I'll go for the plate light combo pack :)
