Interior Light

PostPost by: BenMcCarthy » Wed Jun 16, 2004 10:58 am

Does anyone know where you can buy replacement interior lamps for the +2?

The interior light housed in the headlining over the driver's door has gone and no longer provides an adequate earth. I could try something with superglue but i'd rather buy a new one.

Christopher Neil don't do them?

Ben-- I have 2 of these lights like you mentioned, but they were showing their age. I had noticed while browsing through a VW parts catologue their interior lights looks similar, so I ordered a couple- they were only $8 U.S. They showed up this week, but are unfortunately about 3/4 scale reproductions!

They could still be made to work, I believe, if an aluminum piece with the properly sized aperture was made and fastened to the metal bracket that gets riveted to the body underneath the headliner.

It's at least a low cost alternative.

Thank you, all.

Now where did I leave that tube of superglue?

My Plus 2S has Hella lights fitted above the doors. They look similar to the ones about 3/4 way down this page...
