Re: Glove box light


 Thanks for the schematic. Appreciated. At least I know what I'll doing on the weekend.

 I think the forum should get together and design the ultimate x-trail, with all the mods we have done over the years and sell the patent back to Nissan. emoticon

The only problem with that is that they would have to sell it for $100,000 Au and then probably would not make a profit

OR, they can make a deal with us and have a section in Nissan called X-Customisation and we'll take care of the rest LOL emoticon

I think we're way past what NISMO can offer for Nissan anyway LOL

hehehe

There are many things that can be done the "lazy" way, but that doesn't give me (personally) any satisfaction while modding.

I could have also attached torch lights instead of the door courtesy light which is not an option in Series I, but somehow I thought I'd be needing a lot of batteries for that and it wont look as good emoticon

Nissan has decided to leave this very simple convenience out for some strange reason, so we're basically completing their work for them LOL

Re: Glove box light


I must add that I do remember reading a few years ago in a motor magazine an article on Nissan's attempt (at that point) to recover financially.
The bit that struck me was they had reviewed the amount of cotton thread used to sew the seats together and had reduced it by a small amount, and that this added up to Km's of thread that they will save over all their cars!
I was only thinking about this article the other day and realised I've bought a car from this maker post this penny pinching design approach.

So maybe the glovebox light is just one of those minor savings.....

Mind you, I can't complain about the price of the car. We do get lots of car for the dollar.

Re: Glove box light


Another installation all for $2.00.

I am not up with LED's, Diodes or Resisters, so I decided to do it the easy way.
I purchased a light fitting and switch at the wreckers, out of a VS Commodore, all for $2.00.
Image
The "new" parts.

I fitted the light to the "roof lining" of the glove box and the switch to the left of the opening.
Image
The lamp fitted to the Glove-box "roof"
Image
The switch cut-out location(white paper behind it).

There was plenty of clearance space for the switch under the lid and as I use a felt lining in the glove box proper, it did not suit me to fit it in the same place as Jalal. I used a small drill and a sharp knife to make the cut-outs. You need to be careful not to make the openings so large as to cause rattles as I almost did. I wired the lamp & switch up to the red & black wire going into the cigarette-lighter after removing some of the trim and bits to gain access. Some cloth tape took care of the loose wires.

It works well with sufficient light when the ignition is on. I would have preferred to have it operational at any time but was not confident enough to go searching for a "hot" wire.
