Lotus Elan

location of front interior light

PostPost by: JeffP » Wed Feb 28, 2024 1:48 am

As usual not enough photos were taken. Would someone please tell me where the front interior lamp should be located in a '69 Lotus Elan Plus2?

The rear ones obviously fit into the rear trim panels but I'm at a lost to recall where the front lamp fits.

Many thanks

Just above the rear view mirror. Mine is a 68 RHD.

From memory isn't there a little grp 'receptacle ' in the roof that the lamp fit in to?

Yes there is a piece bonded into the roof that holds the light.Should be pretty apparent without the headliner installed. If the headliner is installed and you have not run the wires....I have bad news for you....
