Hi All

Hopefully my last one of the day.

I have the two wires for the sender in the rear part of the main compartment, but cannot remember how they route out to the top of the fuel tank. I am guessing they pass into the boot/trunk, but how they get under the car is the mystery as no obvious holes to route them.

Thanks

Peter,
I'm not sure if your car has this curved plate in the right rear corner of the boot floor. It has
several holes through the rubber gasket where fuel and electric lines route.

Hi Nigel

Sadly no, The fuel lines just run under the car with the roll over vent pipe is the only pipe to enter the boot. I had considered using that point, but cannot see any wire routing clips underneath hence my query.....

Times like this when you need an endless supply of original photos....

Thanks for trying.

Had to make a decision and I found at the very bottom of the spare wheel well a small slit which is big enough to feed the wires out and it leads directly to the fuel sender with only a few centimetres on the outside of the car, so that was my chosen route. After connection the fuel gauge moved slightly and the low fuel light came on (no fuel in tank yet) which was a great result given I refitted the fuel gauge sender a fair few years ago now.

Peter,
That slit is intended to let water drain out, so not necessarily good to block it. Also, you now have cables which will
be at the mercy of the spare wheel.
I'd rather drill a new hole through the floor and add a rubber grommet.

Just my thoughts....

Sorry Peter, I took this photo and forgot to post it! As far as I can see, the sender wires don't enter the boot. They run along the top of the tank. Fairly sure                            my pre-FL was the same, as I had the tank out of that for reasons now forgotten....

Hi Stuart

Yes that is how my wires go and I think you can see in the top of the picture some wires which are near the wheel well?

Hi Nige

Yep a compromise, but not too keen on more holes on the floor. The slit is not completely blocked. I also have the rubber mat in the boot which means water above that has nowhere to go anyway!

I intend to pad the well to protect the wires from pressure of the wheel, so that should be ok.
