Hi all,
I've just bought online the rear reading lamp with switch on for passengers, because on my V40 MY19 there is the lamp without switch. My current connector have 3 pin as the reading lamp with switch, so i don't think i will have issue during the installation.
I want to ask you if when i install the new one (31305649) also the coloured LED will work (as in the front read lamp), the one you controlled via MYCar.

Thanks in advance,
Fausto

yep, i saw that video a few months ago
in there we never saw the led light on or changing the color, inspite that he says it works.

and i don't think it will give you the power to light up only the back seat lamp, i think it probably allows you to turn it off or on when the front lamp is on.

but I'm hoping it works for you and you can make a video of it too to us to check it out.

best wishes.

Would love to know where you bought it from!
It's not so easy to found one used on EBAY, it took me 3 month. I searched every day on EBAY site (pn 31305649 or 31351312) and finally last week i found one in UK and immediately i bought it!!

There is one black (but you can change the frame with your current lamp so it's indifferent if you buy the black one or the beige one) available here:
Interior lighting - Volvo V40 12 ->> -18 - W873327
But i don't know if they delivery in Brasil.

great can you send a picture of it and the part number?
I can't upload picture with my PC...
But here below the pn:
  • Beige frame lamp 31305649
  • Black frame lamp 31351312
You could buy both of them the frame is replaceble with your curremnt lamp (as i did because my frame was in better condition).

Spotted this thread and thought that looks cool, I want that mod, so went looking but to no avail on eBay.
just been out with car to get milk, essential journey, and had a quick look at mine and to my surprise I’ve already got that style. MY 18 T2 R design 😄

Guys, finally found it and secured a piece of this beauty!
It's one of the beige ones (31305649), haven't tested it out yet, as i'm quarantined away from my boy, though i noticed that the lenses are a bit scratched and i would like to use my own.

I'm wondering if anyone has disassembled their original lamps and can confirm if the lenses (transparent piece of plastic) are the same on both parts?
Pic below, for reference.
