Re: Towbar wiring

What sort of wiring do you need? single or double socket?

Re: Towbar wiring

Didn't you get a guide with the kit?

Got a buzzer unit?

There are a few diagrams which may be of use here:

Re: Towbar wiring

When I did the Marea towbar I just opened up the light clusters and traced the wires back. Had to bring 2 wires across from the left hand side for the left tail and left indicator lights. Foglight was on the right so seemed sensible to make all my connections there.

Re: Towbar wiring

Theres a rubber grommet just behind the near side bumper section (under the rear lights) you can pass the wires through here & also connect them to the tail light wiring from here,you will of course have to run a single wire across to the offside light cluster for the right indicator.

You're supposed to run one from the right hand tail light too..
