This is the way to change your Twingo Interior Light to a Clio Light.

Sorry for the poor photos, i took them from my phone.

1) Take the clear plastic off the surround by just holding it and pull with your hands, nothing can break.

2) Push the clip(circled) in and then pull the surrond down and you can slide the whole unit out.

3) Unclip the adaptor from the unit.

Push the bit circled down to unclip it.

4) Now you can get the new unit and plug in the adaptor into the socket circled.

5) Slide it back up into the space, the left side first as shown in the picture below.

6) Once it is cliped in place, install some bright leds

7) Fit the clear plastic and your job is done

And all the individual lights work as normal? Might take the Clio light out of my mums and swap it to see if she notices :)

I used to work for Nissan UK. Do you work for a dealership, mate? If so, which one?

Ahh nice. I used to deal with Sunderland quite often, regarding part delays, which were the bane of my working life, lol.

Some qashqais have the one we have with just one light bulb depends on spec i think. Most have the one with 3 in though!

I saw a scenic one on there last week for £24 but I was at work when it ended... On a good note, my nans from her quashqai fits and shall soon be mine :)
I also changed the boot bulb, which was a lot easier than I thought!

You just have to squeeze the bulb, and pull it as hard as you can! It will come out!!

You replaced it with an led? I did mine and the one in the boot! Makes so much difference! When I eventually get a three bulb one I might put different colours in :)
