#1 3.8 wiring

Post by Robbiee » Mon Nov 01, 2021 8:06 am

Hi
Just need some help with:
1. What are the tabs for next to the steering column …look like they should take a bit of loom?
2. What goes through the round aperture top left of footwell in to the bell housing area?
3. W which nits of loom go through their big grommet in the bulkhead on the door side? And where should the bullet connector joins finally sit?
Ta

IIRC the hole in the left hand side of the driver's footwell is to enable access to be obtained to one of the starter motor bolts . The major hole in the left wing of the bulkhead is to take the major wiring going to the voltage regulator etc including the thick brown wires - effectively the rest of the car electrics from the bulkhead backwards is fed from these wires

I am not sure which tabs you refer to, but if they are the "bend-over" tabs - a short piece of metal usually covered with a short plastic sheath - these are usually ( as you surmise ) to hold adjacent wires in place

PS for some reason I did not see the pic of the tabs - but the answer stands

Thanks
I meant the right hand side of the loom😂

Here’s a photo of the two metal bendy tabs

1. Tabs to hold choke cable and the wiring loom to wiper/rev counter away from vent flap.
2. Hole for grommet which takes above wiring loom.
3. As Christopher said.

One of the photos shows top right footwell so not sure why that was there?

Hope this helps.
