You might have an extra wire for power to the bulb - take from the dash dimmer/rheostat.
It's a 10 minute job - you just need to find somewhere to mount it (on the steering column, between speedo & fuel/temp gauge is best IMO)

I think this is the type that's just that easy.
now, because i'm not english, can you describe where the coile is??? (*shame*)
i was planning on building an totally new dash, for more of an rally look and wheigth issu. I was thinking only the bare nessity. In a metal plate mounted behind the steeringwheel. Should look cool and loose some wheight.
|03/05/2005 20:06:15||Rens||I know where the coile is..
no wonder i didn't know what it was. We here in holland call it a "bobine"
that's a totaly different word :)
