Re: Wiring loom plug from early 1980s 460

In all my poking around, I have never come across something like that on my 460.

Yellow/black wires show door contact switch for interior light on wiring diagram, I see.

Re: Cargo door hinge seal part number

as far as the wiring grommets, I found these....rubber bellows. They squeeze in the hole for a tight fit without grommet. I feel they are a better seal than the stock grommets I previously had and look better than wrapped wires. I bought several types and if I remember correctly these had a reinforc...

Re: 2001 G ebay
