    Scuse!
    In English sorry it’s late and my glasses are missing!
    I did think it strange to be called ‘sack’ or ‘bag’!
    molto dispiaciuto:(

    my friend,

    I posted a help request for installing the Retrofitting Illuminated Door Sills for my MB w169 3 door.

    This post has not yet been viewed (it is awaiting confirmation by the moderators)

    I hope that when it will be visible, someone can help me to install as easy as possible.

    Thanks in advance!

    Yes, I hope you can answer me soon!

    I asked for help in the post of @GLK.

    I am not practical about these things, and I would need more detailed help than what is written now in the post he has written.

    We hope to receive your detailed help .... I hope so!

    THANKS MY FRIEND !

    Just got back from a friend's birthday party ... so will reply [more coherently] tomorrow ;)

    Essentially - no problem, can be done and not that complicated - will be happy to go step-by-step with you, to get it sorted.

    Welcome to the forum Scacco :)

    I thank you.

    You really are a good person to help me.

    I will really expect your precious help.

    As I wrote to you I will need help step by step, I am not an expert.

    Would it be possible to have photos of the work?
    I worry because the still-lit door is not 12v like the rest of the car wiring.

    I'm sure you can help me better.

    Thanks in advance.

    Hi @Scacco and welcome to the forum. Don’t worry about your grammar because some of the English on this forum is not that good at times but we don’t worry about that!

    My apologies - it has taken me longer, than I thought, to regain the full function of my brain and ability to string together a sentence - apparently I can't party as I used to, thirty years ago ... :)

    I replied via PM, and also in the old thread.

    Essentially, you need to fit the illuminated door sills as directed in the WIS file, including placement of the power supply units, but you can power them from the same signal that is used for the door courtesy lights.

    Grab your positive from door module blue plug, pin1, red-yellow wire, route the wire through the rubber hose conduit into the cabin, run down to the newly fitted power block. There's a ground point right next to it - that's where you get your negative from. Job done.

    Full OE function will be preserved, as door courtesy light actuates exactly the same - on, once the door is open, off, when closed, or after 5 minutes.

    Please let me know if you need more details, etc. I marked all the wires and pins in the diagrams.

    Also, please post a few pictures of your car :)

    Thank's my friend,

    I, too, like you, I find it difficult to recover 100% after having celebrated.

    Even I'm not used as much as I was younger and I came home late, I just took a few hours of sleep to recover .... now I have to sleep more.

    I thank you for your kindness, I hope I can do it
    everything good.

    Thank you for your patience and kindness.

    I will not do the job right away, I have to find a day to dedicate to that, when I have no other commitments.

    If I need, I will definitely contact you for more advice.

    You're really a good person who helps people who need answers.

    No problem :) Happy to help.

    I sent a step-by-step guide via PM, hopefully it'll make it easier.

    Pulling a wire through the rubber hose / conduit is not difficult, but would have to be done on both sides, as they are actuated differently (e.g. one door is open, the other is not ...)

    Use something like this (the purple plastic wire) and silicone spray to feed through first, tape your wire to it, as pictured (green electrician's tape here), and pull back - very simple. Don't forget to wrap your wire in Tesa tape for protection.
