Hi Dave
This could be the case as the weather started to get the better of our good helpers etc so may have been missed Arctic.


Yes poor Ben was on his knees in the cold and wet for hours, and me standing around like a useless ornament, so I guess it's possible.

I seem to remember there are two sets of connectors which get pushed through a bit of foam, so maybe one of them didn't quite make it through... can I check by just pulling the door card off then unscrewing the mirror nuts and bolts?

Checked the glass this morning and it felt warm to me... does that mean there's no point in my pulling the mirror off again to check the connectors? He said hopefully?

if the glass is warm then it is an indication the other plug is in, you just need to tease the plastic cover out in the inside of the door frame to see if the plug is in, no need for serious dismantling

Thanks... can you do that without taking the door card off? Mine is broken, and has a tendency to fall apart. It's an odd trim match too, so haven't seen one the same as a replacement :(

It can be coaxed out without removing the door card ;)

Thanks Dave - I'm SO much better at breaking things than coaxing them, but I'll try ;-)

All I have to remember now is whether to cross the wires of the loom over or not...!

Oh, the bit you've made for me! Hasn't arrived yet, so I haven't had a look at it, but I'm sure I read a thread somewhere about crossing the wires over... or did I dream it, as Brian's Mum in Life of Brian said...

If the door looms are wired conventionally there is no requirement to cross the wires :)

Oh, hammers and suchlike I am VERY good with. It’s getting little connectors into holes etc I struggle with – especially when I don’t know which ones go in which holes.

Usually I take it as an indication that there’s room for improvement when something goes on fire.
