    Switches go in the top of the door handle.

    If the wirings in place in either the door grommets or the doors then it will be easy enough otherwise it could turn into a mission

    If you have the same number of wires either side of the plug then adding a new loom to just the door won't help, you would need to replace the whole under carpet loom or hard wire it in yourself which can be d0ne if you know how to use a multimeter and have a wiring diagram
