Question

Since I seem to be failing in my quest to replace my stock dome light (The square type), I'm thinking of switching to one of the other types. I know the chrome-truck type will work, but not sure if I want to deal with rewiring it.

So my question is how does the round type dome light attach to the roof? Does it use the same two studs that the other types do? Also, do you use those self-threading type nuts on the studs that come down from the ceiling? Thanks.

they both use the same self-tapping sheet metal screws that go up into the roof bows. i took my rear round light out and installed another square light with the two reading lights for the back seat. look on ebay. about 15 bux or so.

Thanks. I'd really like to put the chrome light w/ the two map lights on, but I just re-did the headliner and really don't feel like tearing it down to add the other wire. I'll probably do the round light for now, and put the chrome one in when I feel like a bigger project.

Of course, I'd really like a tan plastic square light. Well, I still haven't tried the dealer.

you dont have to change any of the wiring! just swap the units out. the required wiring is already built into the housing. works fine!

I had read the article in the Tech Library and it talked about adding another wire. Right now there are two wires going into a connector. Is one switched power and one constant power? That way I can just stick female connectors on each wire and connect them to the corresponding male connector on the dome light?

That would be great (after I trim a little headliner)!
