    Glovebox light switch....

    Not the most important dilema on Stephen Hawkins mind I know but:

    does anyone know where the glovebox light switch is???


    Mines just stopped working fro some reason - I've checked the bulb and its ok, could be a fuse I suppose - but everything else seems to be working!

    cheers!

    The switch is on the side of the glove box. A sort of lever type affair...

    The glovebox lamp switch is intergrated into the right hand stablelizing arm. As you open the glove box and extract the arm it alows two contacts to join IIRC. Its probably the bulb thats blown. Whip the glovebox out by removing the three screws at the top and bottom with a T20 driver and have a look.

    Cheers,

    though I just levered out the light unit and checked the bulb by swopping it with the interior vanity light.

    Not the most important thing in the world really, but I hate things not working as they should
