broken door wires
« on: October 27, 2012, 06:16:07 PM »
Hi all, I have the common problem of broken wires in the rubber gaiter by the rear door hinge.
My question is, there are two wires excactly the same colour (green & blue) does it matter which way these are connected up?
Thanks
Dave

It nearly all cases... yes. Without knowing what those wires supply its impossible to answer - Have they both completely separated then?

Hi Mirez
Yes all wires but two had broken ??? So I have soldered them all back together. Everything seems to be working on the door now. I still have a problem with the tailgate opening, I am going to remove the tailgate cover tomorrow to see what is going on.
I have just taken the run on pump off tonight and am planning to replace the bushes that I got off ebay last week. I am just going to do look up your thread on changing them, thanks for posting that, much appreciated.
Dave
