Broken number plate lights

Afternoon all

My daughters 500 has the broken wiring loom from the roof to the tailgate, everything works apart from the number plate lights.

Been reading up on here about this & I'm sure I've seen you can now buy a updated wiring loom, but I can't find a link for love nor money

Can anyone help please????

Thanks

Its poor design.
I had to repair mine as I was getting boot open alerts. I replaced about 5 lengths of flex in the end. If I was to do the whole lot I would remove the roof lining as well as the tailgate panels to get proper access.

Haven't had to do this job (yet) but one thing I foresee is to cut/work on one wire at a time as there may be duplicate colours and they may get connected back up wrong! Or label everything.

Re: Broken number plate lights

Access is the main issue with this job. You can usually spot the wire with the break as its thinner and stretches easily.
For the number plate lights there will only be a single wire open circuit.

Can't remember when I did ours(using all one colour wire!) If there was about 6 plain black wires
