Default Installing mustang dome light

How did you guys mount in on? Did you cut the headliner or just screw it in over it?

Only one it does not just plug right up onto is the 2004 and up rangers. You have to add a power wire.

For mounting mine the plastic base mount fit perfectly to the existing hole in the liner putting it in sideways and turning it then bit of pushing on the sides for it to hold the liner.

Plus like STL said I had to run a power wire for the map lights... I tapped into the radio power wire in the passengers kick panel so they are only live on acc/on key so I don't have to worry about leaving them on.

Why did you add wires or splice wires?
