    Thumbs Down Just my luck - no looms for any extras

    I am waiting on a total closure module and thought it would be good to have it working with the sunroof also. I have a manual sunroof but i know some people have converted theirs to electric by using parts from a Vectra B.
    After finding out that i don't have the looms to connect my foglights up I thought I'd better Check that i have the electric sunroof wiring in place before i go and buy all of the parts needed...Nothing!

    I know that wiring fogs myself won't be too hard to do, but seeing as i don't have the wiring in place for the sunroof, is it basically game over on that idea?

    not entirely........but i wouldnt seriously even consider it

    Even though I have the exact same model/year as you - Im fully prewired and its just total pot luck as youve no doubt already noticed.... and NO u cant have my sunroof loom

    In all honesty would it really be worth all that hassle just for an electric roof?

    Haha! I thought that would be the case...and no it wouldn't really be worth it, just would have been nice if mine was also prewired.

    to wire the sunroof loom in is Dead easy only a few wires
    you can get the loom from a brakers yard
    you can cut it out of a Vectra B or astra G,Zafira A
    its only a few wires
    about 1 hour to wire up
    I did this on my Black 5 door car an that works off the door locks when you dead lock the sunroof shuts

    Loom was £50 from a brakers with motor an cover

    What engine is your car? just that I have a full interior loom for a Z18XE which has a lot of the extra connectors fitted. I can check whether it has the sunroof connectors but it's almost certainly got the foglight ones plus heated seats etc.

    I have the X16SZR.

    If it fits, would that mean swapping the whole loom, or do the seperate looms detatch/unclip. e.g. just adding the sunroof & foglight looms to the existing wiring. (forgive me for my lack of knowledge with looms/wiring etc..)



    ...also, i realise that i will have to get a twin fog switch when i want to wire my fogs; will i still need to wire the switch to the fogs if i use an original loom or will the wiring to the switch be in place as standard. (if i'm making any sense )

    Some are prewired for front fogs and some aren't. You'd need to check the fusebox to see if the spade connectors are in place.

    You'd probably need to replace the entire loom for some extras, sunroof you may get away with. Fogs I'd say no, you can't add the wiring later, too diffcult.
