Re: Wiring Harness

I would be a pain in the arse! But it could be done.

Any particular reason why you are doing this?

I just took the WHOLE dash out of my XD, which exposed the whole harness and made things quite accessible - would be similar to an XF minus a few extra mod cons. Putting it back together is the fun part!!!

Will you be removing the whole guts from the ignition & fuse box with all the accessory wire looms and all the wiring in the engine bay?

Re: Wiring Harness

Agree with TruBlu351. Removing the dash makes things heaps easier - can't see how you can get the whole loom ou without doing this - unless you are leaving the dash loom in place. The rest isn't too hard - just take it easy when bringing the wiring back though sills etc. If you are planning to put it back in, tie a drawstring (good strong stuff) to the ends of the wire to be pulled through - so you can tie the loom back on and pull it back when you are finished!

Re: Wiring Harness

to be honest mate its not that hard. i have an xe and have converted it to an xf ghia (panels, interior, wheels etc). Even the ghia dash wasn't hard just a matter of either remembering where all the plugs go or being able to read an electrical diagram. Give it a go it's pretty hard to stuff up.
