Loom Identification For A Hybrid
Posted 13 April 2019 - 07:00 AM
Following on frrom my introduction, here - http://www.theminifo...792-old-newbie/
I am in the process of trying to pinpoint which loom I should be purchasing to replace what is currently in my car.
I called on of the specialist Mini places but I wasn't filled with confidence when he gave me a part number on the phone, lots of umms and ahs while I gave him the required information.
My car is registered as a 1971 Clubman with a 1275 engine but what I don't know is what car the loom was from if it was built using parts from a similarly aged Cooper S.
Can anyone guide towards a new car loom that would need the fewest changes. My car currently has these items -
One column stalk (indicator, dip main and horn)
4 fuse holder (can this be changed to two to suit?)
Heated rear window (not a show stopper if not available)
Centre 3 dial dash
Toggle switches in centre
The chap on the phone from the Mini parts place identified the part number 5L1331 as the closest to what I need. Do the learned members of this forum agree that this is the closest or the correct option?
Thanks in advance.

so what engine is it? as that has more to do with the harness than most things as an A and A+ has a big effect on what is needed. changing from a 998 to a 1275 has no change of harness if the same engine type.
see nothing Hybrid from your description.

Plenty of Hybrid in the wiring.
Column Ignition 69>
One column stalk >76
4 fuse holder 76>
Heated rear window Not sure when it became an option but I have seen an add on extra loom and switch .
Centre 3 dial dash Not Clubman 61-76
Toggle switches in centre Spade connectors the same as early rocker switch so 59-76
So apart from the 4 fuse holder I would think part number 5L1331 will do the job.

"see nothing Hybrid from your description"
Not even this? - 1971 Clubman with a 1275 engine but what I don't know is what car the loom was from if it was built using parts from a similarly aged Cooper S.
My introduction has more details but basically, the original owner had a Cooper S but had an accident. The remnants of the Cooper S were built into the Clubman body. What I don't know is how much of each was used to form what I have here.
It's a learning process, I'll get there.
