I got tired of the old, ugly, oxidized, pitted, dull illumination, antique, factory Bronco dome light and ditched it last night... Man, that thing is hideous...
I replaced it with a dome light out of a 95 Mustang... which is TONS better and looks awesome once installed!
For those wondering what one looks like, IF you have never seen one, it looks EXACTLY like this one:
It is a DIRECT FIT, DIRECT SWAP, PLUG-N-PLAY, NO MODS NEEDED AT ALL! :rockon
The new dome light has MUCH better lighting qualities, plus the dual map lights are WAY better than the original Bronco map lights... it looks awesome once installed too - gives a slightly more modern look... This unit ROCKS!
EASY Directions for swap/upgrade:
1) remove old dome light lens cover (if yours is still in place, many of them fall off and get lost or broke over the years). To remove it, grasp the lens cover and pull, or, use a small flat head screw driver and pry off the cover. If yours is already missing, you're ahead of the game!
2) Get a Phillips head screwdriver. Looking at the dome light base once the lens cover is removed, there are (3) Phillips head screws. REMOVE all (3). Once the 3rd screw is almost out, grasp the dome light, otherwise it will fall on your head. Remove dome light, stomp on it and throw it away, or resell on eBay for few bucks
3) After old dome light is removed, there *might* be a white plastic triangle spacer still attached to the ceiling OR it may be on the back of the old dome light - you can DISCARD this piece, as it is not needed.
4) Get your "NEW" 94-current Mustang dome light and remove the lens cover. To remove the lens cover, there is a small indentation on the base under the lens cover, use a small flat head screw driver, insert into the indentation area and pry off the lens cover.
5) Hold the new dome light to the ceiling and match up the (3) screw holes (you may need a flashlight or shop light to see through the little holes for alignment).
6) Re-install the (3) screws to secure the new dome light to the ceiling. Test the light out by opening the door, or turning the light knob ON so you have the interior light on with the door closed. if all works out well, re-install the lens cover (it just snaps into place)
I purchased a black dome light like the one in the above link - for the same price off of eBay. That is the BEST pricing for them, don't pay any more than $10 for one...
TRUST ME - for those with the older crappy antique dome lights, you'll REALLY like the upgrade!!!!
