Glove box light

Recommended Posts

See attached pictures, I never knew there was a light bulb socket in my glovebox until I pulled it apart today. I put a spare blue bulb in there and it's all wired up it works perfectly, but it doesn't do anything!

The light goes nowhere as you can see there's 2 slots to clip on the mount where a tiny amount of light could shine into the the glovebox below but 99% of the light from the bulb just gets blocked by solid plastic. 


I took a scalpel to the plastic that was blocking the light and it works as intended now. I thought this was really strange, are they all built like that or does mine have a casting error in the plastic?




this last picture is how it looks now I've removed some plastic. Shouldn't it have been designed like this? 20200409_141651.thumb.jpg.e32f5e685a9072d1374ff12741131ba5.jpg
