Yes, but I didn't want to see a strobe light show coming from my glove box. :smile:Hi - Did you consider using a tilt switch?
I thought of that to, but I had trouble with the spacing between the magnetTry using the window/door magnetic switch used in alarm systems. The switch is avail as NC or NO. Those have two pieces... a magnet that cause the switch to operate, and the switch itself. Mount the magnet on the moving part, and the switch on something stationary.
Another possibility are proximity switches. They toggle when something gets close to it, typically metal, but many types are out there. Plus they are super rugged. Used typically in machinery.
After removing the glove box end/stops, I just used a stubby screwdriverhow do you get to the screws to remove that panel if their from behind?
im sorry i didnt understand. cool mod tho
I did the same thing when I pulled it off but, my thinking when putting it back on was that oh the clips will keep it on but it wouldn't stay on right so I epoxied them back and now it stays onWhen I did a glovebox light install, one of the speed clips stripped and I couldn't get the screw out, so I had to force the piece off, breaking the plastic anchor that held the clip.
When reassembling, I didn't replace either of the inner screws, and haven't had any trouble so far.
As to your question in the picture you provided about the PRND21 lettering next to the shifter lighting up, my 09 E's PRND21 lights up when I turn on the headlights. I dunno if that helped because the luminosity might be a feature on newer models.how do i remove that panel in the pic.
if pic doesnt load....... the piece of trim above glove box.
any help appreciated. thnx.
