Re: Hatch wiring cables

Remove the trim round the screen and gently remove the wires don't use excessive force on the screen terminals

I'm probably misunderstand - I've already removed all the trim but still can't work out how the heated rear screen terminals remove ...

Re: Hatch wiring cables

Not totally sure but generally they are just spade connectors use a tool to hold the tab that's bonded to the glass in orer to give you a bit more grip to pull against there's not a locking tab is there?
I rewired mine without the kit using silicone wire but did not do the heated screen wires as they were still just about ok.

Spooky mines just started doing it again, press part of handle has minimal movement, lifted boot, cleaned all the grime off the press, squirted some cleaner into the hinge gaps, pressed it about 20-30 times which slackened it a little, got finger nail in to lift the press out of the handle assembly about 2mm and squirted some in there too. Eventually it worked free and it's now moving enough to make contact with the switch and it's working. So glad it wasn't a snapped wire.

Re: Hatch wiring cables

Bought the kit (MOT due next month, no number plate lights)

The local stealer had repaired them for last MOT, had destroyed the rubber so the wires were rattling about.

Took about an hour, including removing the boot internal trim.

Happy boy now.

Re: Hatch wiring cables

Yesterday I fixed the wiring problem on our 500
I bought the repair kit on Ebay.
After removing covers I took out the wiring in the hatch because I want the hose for the window washer to be original so I didn't cut that hose.
It took me 2 hours for the repair.

Re: Hatch wiring cables

I didn't know they did kits. I extended the wife's loom.
