    Two Block Connectors Under Ash Tray

    Hi Guy,

    While looking around today (again) i found two block connectors
    One Light green one white? They were under the ash tray next to the air feeds to the back vents sorry no pics didnt have my phone with me

    PS there not the ones for the TC/Heated seats?

    Any ideas

    Thanks

    Jim

    the only plugs found under there are usually the heated seats and automatic transmission plugs - some have traction control looms too but very rarely

    obviously if u have none of the above from the factory then the looms are just left in situ as youve discovered

    cant recall off hand what the white one will be though - was it the same size as the green one roughly?

    Hi,

    Yeah one is defo white and one green both are tucked right by the back new to the air feeds, and just behind the ash tray.

    Its hard to describe but its behind the ducting below and along side the gear stick hand break drivers side, with the roof arieal tapped to the top,

    I know its not the TC/Heated seats as they are plugged in?

    On a slightly diff topic i cant believe how many connectors are hidden around the car not connected to anything i counted at least 10 behind the centre console alone, wiring for the CD changer plus loads just taped off

    Could be connectors for electric roof & rear windows if Vaux have used a cabrio wiring loom at the factory, it's been reported in the past.
