Yeah it was one of the last of the simple cars. Now you get 2-3 fuesboxes.

Will have to sit on the dinign room floor unpicking the useless stuff.

Loom Slimmin has begun, only got as far as untapeing most of it.

It's not helped by being an XR4x4 loom as it has the extra wiring for the AWS and lamp failure. Fortunatly the official diagrams are a gr8 help there.

Once the chaff has gone the fuesebox will be re-terminated with multiplugs and the remaining loom sections fitted with matching plugs. This will make it pluggable for ease of removal.

I have spent about 5 hrs sitting on the dining room floor, with the loom, the oficial diagram, meter and snips.

All the Window, Mirror, CLM, Fuel Puta, AWS, Lamp Failure, Wiper, Washer, Front Fog, Dash Dimmer, Wiper Speed, Stereo, Fag Lighter, ABS Feed, Interior Lighting, And other assorted crap has been cut out.

Some wires are awaiting re-joining especialy for the removal of the lamp failure module. The loom I had was also missing the loom from the A-Pillar back so that will need making up.

Next stage is to split down the sections and terminate on multiplugs to make the loom PLUGGABLE.

Dragged the loom out of the corner of the dining room and started to refresh my memory as to where I got to. Got as far as Identifying some of the branches and the labels on the floor no longer on the wires .

Then went out and fitted the fues box to it's mount.

So only 10 months of inactivity

Would be nice but Every penny counts at the moment, Changed my daily driver in august to try and save cost. But the previous owner of my BMW 530D neglected a few major issues that so far have cost me 1K and I calculate another 250 to just fix all the things that were wrong. And the wifes car has cost near 800 to all in just 3 months.


My freind brought round his MX5 1800 track car the other day and it gave me a glimmer of inspiration again, same day I took the BMW from Brough, Over middleton in teesdale and down to Hexham via Alsoton. The BMW was fantastic at covering the distance so long as the bends were not tight!


So I will just continue with the Sierra loom, got to go into work tonight though having been there all day already ... So not tiring my brian this evening.
