Hi Ricky, a 1998 is a Mk1 and a 2002 is a Mk2 which is why the looms are different. The 99 Galaxy is likely to be a Mk1 as well so thats the one you want to try for.

If the spec levels are similar then that loom should work without modification.

You may well find a 98 plate galaxy door loom could be as bad as yours. Have you thought about soldering in extra lengths of new wire.

wow just remebered about the  post here.

sorry for no replys.

i hacked apart one from a galaxy from a brekers yard and replaced all the cables, with same colours and used shrink tube etc.  was a pain, but much worth it.

this seems to be a common issue for many people, affecting central locking, windows etc.

thanks for the help  guys =]
