    There are two bolts either side take them out & lift the seat to one side its heavy also make sure you cover the terminals on the battery before replacing the seat as the base of seat is steel (y)

    On mine there are four bolts.. two at the front, access them by pushing the seat all the way back.. hex head bolts..

    Two at the rear.. to access, push seat all the way forward.. socket heads IIRC

    Ideally have a helper to lift the seat up and back into the hab area,,

    Q1 I bought mine from Aten .. G4 side pin .. http://www.atenlighting.co.uk/caravan-motorhome-lighting/g4-leds

    good quality LEDS , Regulated from 10-30V, and not polarity sensitive - i.e. the LED will light up whichever way the positive and negative power is applied so no rewiring is required.

    Q2 .. should be outside above the door (or have I not understood the question)

    I have a 2002 B classic 544. There was no awning light as an original fitment but the control panel above the door does have a switch for one to be wired into. A previous owner did fit an awning light, but it is more central on the MH rather than above the door as I think a very narrow unit would have been needed to fit between the top of the door and the awning, which would probably not have been available pre-LED days.

    My awning light operates via an integral PIR but at some stage an override switch has been fitted so the light can be turned on when either it would not be dark enough to activate or there was no movement outside. For some reason the switch in the control panel was not used for this.
