I used a pin switch from BMW and their connecters wires (the green ones in the photos) with a stick on led light from Oznium. To add the glove box light. I T-tapped the same pink wire for the 12 volt hot that that the door sills use and used the ground bolt for the ground. I also added in line fuse just in case problems. The only hard part was making square hole for the switch to sit in with drill and my rotary tool.

Looks great. icon_cool.gif I've done a somewhat similar install on my Element,since it didn't come with a factory glovebox light either. I used four prewired Oznium white superfluxes and a pin switch.It's nice and bright. icon_smile.gif

Where did the name glove compartment come from anyways?? Is it because everyone kept gloves in their for driving?? Did everyone drive with a set of gloves when the Ford Model T was out or something?
