Question Glovebox Light Question

Here's a good question for anyone.

There was a Glovebox Light option listed, and my 60 has the light bulb.

But, the glovebox was butchered when it was replaced, and the bulb just hangs in there now. I think that it should have a clip or something to hold it in there.

Does anyone have this option on their 58-60 and describe, or better yet, post a photo of what it should look like?

If so, it would be nice for the tech section too.

Default 1960 Thunderbird Glove Box Light

I happened to take a picture of the glove box light when I disassembled my Golde Top dash a week ago.



That metal clip around bulb socket unsnaps. I might have it on backwards. I have the diagrams of how it is installed, but not with me. I can get it next week.

What a guy !!!!!!!!!

Yes, I see that the bulb pushes in the same hole diameter as for instument lights. I can make that bracket.

Hopefully the instuctions that you have will tell me where the bracket screws in to, and where the hole is made in the glove box or I'll ruin it.

Thanks very much.
