    Rear Aircon Panel Lighting

    Hi,

    I recently realised that the rear aircon panel in my ride does not hv lights... actuali i didn notice it when i first got the car, but as i recently DIYed (added) the rear ashtray, i noticed that there are no lights, so not sure if i screwed up something, or if there reali are no lights there.

    Anyone with stock E90 can help me look at your panel and advise me here? If theres supposed to be lights, i'd have to open it up to relook where i screwed up...

    thnaks in advance!

    Richlee, tonite I go behind and see. Never sit behind before.....ke ke

    “Remembering that I’ll be dead soon is the most important tool I’ve ever encountered to help me make the big choices in life. Because almost everything - all external expectations, all pride, all fear of embarrassment or failure - these things just fall away in the face of death, leaving only what is truly important.”
    “And most important, have the courage to follow your heart & intuition. They somehow already know what you truly want to become. Everything else is secondary.”
