Yes mate, but I've got to find it. That particular part (and the IRR switch if fitted) can lead to a spectacular loss of smke from the wiring if you're not careful.

Words of warning should have been added, 1] Don't mess with the IRR switch/Relay, they really do let smoke out, and 2] The diagram is an official MoD publication, so has probably got in built errors (to make sure you let the smoke out of your wiring) Laughing .

I'm just fitting the normal lights at the moment. I'll worry about the extras later.

The IRR lighting is part of the circuit. It's not an extra.
