Rear wiring loom

Hi Can somebody help - where is the wiring loom from the dash to the rear located. Does it run alongside the trans tunnel and over the petrol tank to the boot?

The wiring loom for the rear of the car is located in the passanger footwell (drivers side for LHD) and runs up to the left had side of the petrol tank.
It then runs along the LH side and across the back of the car under the boot latch to the rear right hand side lamp.

Hope this helps

Hope these pictures help, RHD car. The loom travels along the tunnel and crosses over behind the tunnel cover and then passes over the fuel tank.
Regards
John

Hi Graham and Sean - As with all cars it is very dependant upon the model and year. I have a 1969 built S which has the 3 fuse boxes in the engine bay - and i'm sure it would be totally different for the S 130.

It actually joins the front loom just beside the heater, runs up above the glove box and then down behind the side carpet onto the floor. Here it runs between the seat runner and the door aill, then runs up behid the rear side panel over the top of the tank.
