Should there be a light here?
« October 03, 2017, 18:42:20 »
Hi guys,
When I bought my 2011 Hyundai it was used, so I didn't know if there should be a light lighting. The thing I am talking about is shown on the image link.
And  If there is a light is it easy to remove the red casing? 

Many thanks

Hi naser,
Just checked mine,  doesn't light either,  so am assuming it's a reflector. Will check owners manual.

Checked and no globes for that position.

If you're super keen and creative you could always customise a light into the reflector. :D

Yes you could strap a torch to the side of the seat aimed at the reflector and turn it on when you open the door. :rofl:

Or even some strips, maybe just enough void and may even get the pigtails out past the clips
