Tailgate wiring

I am in the process of restoring a 1991 DGT to full glory. The wiring between the main body and the tailgate is knackered. Wires are broken and rubber bellows all chewed up. I guess this is quite a common problem and wonder how others have solved it. Do any of the aftermarket kits fit the Tipo? If not, I guess it is probably best to rewire from scratch but how would I replace the rubber bellows/sheathing. Thank you for any advice.

Hi. Ive never had it fail on any FIAT.

Obviously OLD now though..

Worth googling : ebay the bellows part number though.

Look forward to seeing the car my Red DGTs went 15 years ago..

1.4 and TD.. 'Identical Opposites'!!

Re: Tailgate wiring

the rubber connector unclips from one side or the other and then becomes useless. You can buy sleeving in various circumferences for individual wires or looms I used the convoluted tube and ran it into the holes on either side.

Also some of my wires required rejoining with heat shrink. What happened to your Mk11, I think I saw it for sale?

Re: Tailgate wiring

The rubber gaiter for the body shell to tailgate wiring consist of 3 parts:

Body Shell Clip: P/N: 7594309
Rubber Gaiter: P/N: 7594308
Tailgate Clip: P/N: 7630457

All of these parts are no longer available from Fiat.

A quick web search found:

Re: Tailgate wiring

Hi Iggy64, sounds like an interesting project. What colour have you had it painted? Is it the original factory colour? Would be great to see some progress pictures if you have any.

Re: Tailgate wiring

Many thanks for looking out the part numbers s130. I did try to find them on EPER but obviously didn't choose the right section. I have the old wires exposed and ready for splicing in some new sections and it would be good to fit the proper gaiter and clips. The hatch side one is actually still sound.
The car is resprayed in the original shade, storm blue metallic. The front end is almost back together now so will get round to posting some pics soon.
