Default Anybody know p clip distances

Does anyone know off the top of their heads the minimum distances for fixing fuel hoses/ brake hoses and wiring in the tranny tunnel for IVA?. I know its in their somewhere but for the life of me I cant find it. Reason I ask is i think ive truly overdone it and ive run out of rubber lined p-clips, being a tight arse i was going to remove a few and carry on

I thought it was 100mm in the transmission tunnel, and 150mm everywhere else? Can't really go wrong if you secure it too often.

Thats me b***oxed as well then...
I'm sure its no more than 150mm in tranny tunnel and 300mm everywhere else..

Found this by Spud
Hi David,

The manual says that all cables / pipes must be securely fitted at a max 300mm intervals and free from chafing. This reduces in the tranny tunnel though and needs to be every 150mm, preferably laid on a channel.

its says. (in genral construction)
"All electrical cables/wires must be free from chaffing and secured at intervals of at least every 300mm unless contained in a secure hollow component."

cant find anything with an actual mesurement at the mo for brake and fuel pipes but i cant see why the trans tunnel would be any diffrent from the floor,rear axel area or engine bay.
i dont think any production car has clip spacing as tight as 100mm (4in)

I did mine closer than that but just made sure it looked tidy and was no more than 300 anywhere
