Hi chaps I’ve been Reinstalling the engine wiring loom and I noticed in the main connector for the engine loom it’s abit black like it’s been burning, it’s the one that the engine loom connects to from inside the car and is fitted to a bracket on the bulkhead, can this be changed easily
Any advice appreciated
Thank you

Also bit of topic but anyone know how much washer tubing I’ll need to get to the wash bottle in the boot 🤷‍♂️

Dear 

 

what exactly you want to do the MPI have 2 harness in the front one comes from inside the dashboard to front light and another relays and fuses inside  and the second loom Is for the engine from ECU to sensors.

 

regarding the washer tubing you need 5 meter from the front washer to the rear bottle

 

Regards

The one I need to change is the large plug that comes through the large Hole in the bulkhead and connects to the engine Ecu loom it’s clicks onto a bracket on the bulkhead

Dear 

 

the harness you mean is the main harness that comes with fuse box and a lots of clips and plug for the electric for the car, I would like to tell you this harness is very hard to change it 

1) you have to open and remove the dashboard

2) you have to pass and arrange the wire

3) know each switch and clips for what

 

its is not an easy way and very complicated, why you want to change the loom?

 

I share the photo for my car

Been thinking maybe rather than replacing the whole block can I just take out the one wire that’s burnt clean it up and the insert it
How do you hey these out of the blocks, I’ve watched a few bids on YouTube which seem good but as always as I’ve welcome 🙏

You don't take the block apart but pull the pins out .. but they are hooked in so you need some "special" tools to release them..

Ye figured that out today, had Abit of wire wedged in it but wouldn’t come out, I plugged the 2 connectors togeather in today and my electrician friend tested it to see if the terminal was allowing current and it was so he reckons someone just hasn’t pushed it togeather properly and it was just arking which is why it’s burnt, we gave it a good clean and it looks ok now so I’ll give it a try, if it gives me problems I’ll replace both male and female connectors as needed
Thanks for all the help but this most appreciated as always
