Do you mean the bulb has gone, or you don't have a light at all fitted? The bulb is a simple 501 type, if you don't ahve one fitted on the J-spec, might I suggest popping along to ultraleds.co.uk and buying a 30cm LED strip and wiring it in... Something I plan on doing at some point... only with a lot more than 1 strip. :)

Although that may work on most of us in here, crasheed has a j-spec, so has the internal boot release.

I still say it don't matter that much.. you still gotta get out of the car to close it again... now remote open and close... that's the way to go :E

Oh, and back on topic, I have a boot light too... really useful :E

Underneath the "parcel shelf" between the two speakers..

It should be clipped into a rectangular hole..

It's on a switch like the doors... so it only comes on when you open the boot. Not sure, but I think the switch is part of the lock mehcanism on the bootlid. But that's on UK spec cars, no idea with J-specs.

I found it! For three years I have looked high and low and finaly tonight when I picked up the new on with a working light I found out where it is. It's dead centre in the boot about 2" in from the edge and all it is is a push in bulb holder. But it was pushed up inside because I think what happens is it gets knocked and goes up the hole. I'll grab a picture tomorrow and post it up.
