    Was looking on EPC for a part number (rubber doorstop) which I found, but then had a flick around and found the interior lamps page.

    On this page it showed the door exit lamps (puddle lamps) but also a B-Pillar lamp that seems to be for illuminating the sliding door entrance.

    I have always thought it strange that the Viano doesn't have these and was surprised to see it on the EPC. I made sure the filters for my ViN were on, that is I could only see parts for my van. I've put the image from my PC below.

    Anyway, has anyone modded their Vito/Viano to have these?

    Anyone got any bright :cough: ideas on how it could be done?

    They're basically a small LED that fits into the corner of the bottom part of the B pillar. If that makes any sense??

    Ah, I see.

    If you've still got them and want to sell, PM me mate.

    Cheers
