Before you ask, yes i have used the search function, and No i havent found the answers of which i am after.

I have found a reputable place in my hometown of which sells LED interior Festoons etc. If i bought some the correct size, would i have to remove the interior light fuse?
and would any warning lights show up as they will be running on a lower than normal voltage because they are LED? cant seem to find the answer on here thats all.

Also for christmas, I got a pair of door speakers - Pioneer TS-G 17121 will these be a straight swap? and will spacers be needed?
Just dont want to get my door card off and find outi have to travel to halfrauds to get a set!
Will the speaker cover also be swappable for the one in my door card does anyone know?

Help would be appreciated ASAP, as i want to get them done [:D]

Thanks, Jord.

If in doubt ALWAYS disconnect the battery anyway,takes seconds to do and is free but could take hours and lots of pounds to fix if it does go breasts upwards.

Re the speakers,what headunit will be driving them? If it's a standard tape deck then they'll sound worse than the stockers,in fact unless you're planning on a big audio upgrade it really isn't worth touching the front speakers.

HOW AND WHY TO UPGRADE YOUR MK.4S SPEAKERS

Trackers have backup batteries so no problem there and aftermarket headunits are good with aftermarket speakers.Hopefully the OEM door mounted tweeters arte still working as you won't hear the Pioneer's tweeters buried deep behind the doorcards and aimed at your ankles.
