    Glovebox light connector (mk4)

    Took my glovebox out to fit my head unit properly and put it all back together but dont know if its possible to put the connector on the right hand side of the glovebox (bulkhead side) the wrong way round, possibly leaving the light on constantly instead of only coming on when the door is opened.

    Anyone know?

    When i did mine the arm "pinged" out of its position causing it to not hit te pressure switch to break the circuit.

    I'd take the glove box out again, unplug it, ensure it looks to be working correctly.

    The wiring plug only has 2 connections, so it will work either way round.
    As said above, check the arm on the lid is operating the switch properly.
