So I recently purchase a new genuine overhead light console, as the rocker switch for the door on mine was fd and kept blowing fuses. I have a 5 door.
Had a lil trouble finding the right part code for the item as they changed the number, but with a little help from your knowledgeable blokes got it sorted i think.
I received the new part yesterday and everything looks fine, except when i took the dome light plastic cover off. This mofo only has 2 501 bulbs and not the centre license plate one, like the original.
I dont know whether i can blame the supplier as they have ordered it using the vin and so i guess correct part number. Theres no reason a 3 door (or any car with black interior witha sunroof) wouldn't have the middle bulb that only turns on when the doors open so why is it missing? I'll probably try and mod the new part to look like the old as the connectors are all still there but would like to take some advice before i do irreversible damage to the new expensive part.
Also it seems the white plastic is a little weaker then the black i had.
What do you guys reckon i should do?
