Installing a ‘Submarine’ courtesy light in a Freelander 2

I had come across this kind of thing in a BMW before but never in a Ford (from which a lot of the Freelander 2 parts come from).

After some research I found the following variants of the Ford ‘submarine’ light: –

One had the alarm ultrasonic sensors built in but  these weren’t required so I removed the control PCB
