Fuse box

Post by benji1985 » 23 May 2016 08:32 am

Good day all, while taking my engine out the other day i came across a wire, this wire has now been identified as the main feed for the rear window wiper wash. However this wire does not come through the fuse box it is just "poked" through the bung for the speedo.

My OCD is not liking this and i was wondering if anyone knows of a wire that is not being used in the fusebox so i can route this wire nicely along the wiring loom.

Also any idea where i can get this bung that has fallen apart for the speedo?

Any advice would be helpful

Thank you

Ben

Hello Sir, rest assured OCD is treatable - when it takes 2 hours to get out of your house, get help - the treatment is very effective. Thanks for the parts which arrived today ;-0

To answer your automotive question, how's about this?

http://www.carbuildersolutions.com/uk/b ... ommet-pack

Its a kit car accessory firm in Kent and quite a good supplier.

Also, 'the bay' where a search for 'bulk head grommet' gives promising results.

The alternative 'in situ' method is to use foam draft excluder tape and wrap it round the cable in a spiral till it fills the hole in the bulk head and then give it a generous coat of black silicone sealant.
