After taking my car down to this Auto Electrician on 3 seperate occations and being let down by said Auto Electrician I decided to wait till the Christmas holidays to effect a repair.
I remember how much I hate working on cars
Anyway, I sourced a connector. The wires came off the other side, so had to extend the wiring loom. Popped into Port Solent Marine Superstore to purchase a 1m length of 50A single core wire and cut this to size and fitted it to new plug.
Great I thought, all I need to do is to strip the wire ends on the loom in the engine compartment. The small ignition light cable was a doddle. The two heavier ones......What a nightmare! Because of the heat the insulation has fused to the cable inside. It's so difficult to remove. I've had to strip out the Alternator to gain access! Now poor light has stopped play and it looks like my fishing trip will be cancelled tomorrow so that I can continue on the repair.
I just wanted to take a sledge hammer to it at one point
