On many LXs all that is missing from having front footwell lights is the bulbs. You need two 501 bulbs which look like this:


Using a torch to see what you are doing stick your head into the footwell and look up and you'll see the socket. Insert the bulb - job done!

If you don't have the holders, you'll need to find some (501 type) and wire them into the loom that goes up the passenger side (for RHD) A-pillar to the courtesy light. See the Haynes manual to locate the appropriate wires.

Alternative Footwell Light Fitting Method

If you want the footwell lights without the bodging to the main interior lighting then you can wire them in like ford do.

Parts Required

Footwell light bulb holders ( either from ford themselves or from a scrappers )

Ford Connector Plugs From a Scrapyard for the required connections to follow for the wiring connections in it make fitting easier.


Run 2 Wires From C500 pin 11 to each side of the footwell light holders.

now run 2 wires from C70 pin 2 to the 2nd connectors in the footwell light holders.

this is how ford wire the footwell lights
