    I presume the courier gave you something for you to prove they've taken it?

    Hi all
    Well as you all know I bought an alternator on the 3 Jan and the bearings went on it so got on to seller [ victoria auto parts ] and they sent another one out but I had to pay again. The one they sent was the wrong one so they then sent another [ which I didn't pay for ] so now i have 3, one on the car,one which is the wrong part and one with duff bearings So now they sent a courier 2 weeks ago to pick up the two I didn't want. They now have had the 2 alternators for two weeks but no refund, I have phoned them 4 times and each time they say they will look into it and phone back in 1 hr but they never do. BEWARE VICTORIA AUTO PARTS :rant:

    When I changed the boot lid last year, the replacement came with a loom. I cut both looms with as much excess as possible at that point, which gave an extra three or four inches of cable to play with. I then soldered and heat shrunk all of the conductors, extending the heat shrink as far along the wires as possible to provide more support.
    After taping again, I bought some spiral loom wrap from RS, (but you can get it at Maplins) and finished it off with that.
    With the extra protection and more movement on the loom in that area, it appears to put a lot less strain on the wires.

    This is what knackered really's car up too.

    similar.. mine was an alarm fault that went barbecue.

    before i even put a battery on the F i checked the boot loom and all was ok.

    i did remove the lower clip that holds the loom to the hinge arm, shown brown in the above picture, this stops the sudden kink point from happening. :yesnod:

    Clearly a design fault...any ideas how to prevent this happening, the harness takes a sharp turn at the hinge point, maybe it could be re-routed.

    Anybody here modded it ?

  • Mine went last weekend. Fortunately the only thing that happened was the instrument lights and the L/H running lights went out.
    I stripped that area of the loom and repaired a broken ground but things are still a bit flaky so all of the kinked (kinky?) wires will be getting repaired this weekend. Fingers crossed!

    Looks to me like a shock top rubber - maybe fell in somewhere when they were replaced by a previous owner maybe, and then worked their way down to the ground finally?
