    need to identify a wire in estate tailgate by 11am for PVS!

    need quick help to identify a wire!

    As you may see from my thread last night in Astra Discussion, and from my thread in the Mk4>Bodywork forum, I have decided at last minute to swap my tailgate over before PVS.

    Having carried out the swap, I have done most of the wiring to connect it all up. The problem I now face is that I have an extra wire coming from the tailgate, that doesn't have a corresponding wire on the vehicle side of the loom.

    The wire is brown with a yellow trace.

    Any ideas what this is?

    probably, as the mystery continues to get deeper...

    In addition to the "extra" brown/yellow wire, it appears I only have one black (yellow trace) wire coming from the tailgate, whereas on the loom coming from the car there are two black(yellow trace) wires...

    I am currently in process of stripping down wiring from old tailgate to see what's what, and hopefully I can sort it that way. Would be helpful if someone like Autosparks came on or if someone had a wiring diagram and could tell me as I've got about an hour and a half to fix this, and to straighten out the rear panel so that the tailgate actually closes!

    Then there's the small matter of packing the car as well!

    I think I'm going to be struggling
