    Ok thanks mate.

    I'll have to try find a multimeter first, if not I'll need to find a guide on removing glovebox.

    Glovebox is easy enough to remove mate. 6 screws in total - 1 in each vent, 2 at the top when you open the glovebox and two at the bottom.

    No wires or anything to be careful I don't pull on?

    I've undone all the screws. It pulls out ok, but seems to get stuck on the bottom left, and I can't get it all the way out?

    It should just now pull out, give it a hard pull you can't really break anything. There will be wires for the light just unplug it and a plug for the torch, which will need to be pulled really hard to get it off.

    Ok mate. The two screws at the very bottom of the glovebox dont need undoing do they? I've taken out the 6 you said, 2 in vents, 4 top and bottom of glovebox when open. That it?

    Hmm I've just had a quick look at mine and there seems to be two right underneath the glovebox that hold the underside of the interior to it. I didn't originaly have any screws in there and used 10mm nut and bolt to hold em in place.

    I think they'll need to come off aswell mate

    You should be looking for a black box wuth a white plug (or 2) going to it. Black wires will run into this box and its your alarm module. Follow the thickish wire that goes towards the bulk head and make sure the plug is connected. You may need to remove some insulation tape to have a proper look.
