Can anyone help me with some info, I have just made up a new loom for my S1 but I have no idea where or how it is fixed and the run it takes in the boot (trunk) What I have done is stick some triangular section pieces of wood up in the angle where the boot meets the tail and screwed it to them with cable clips, it works but is it right? and where does it go to connect to the fuel tank sender after leaving the right hand lights, above the boot floor, or below it?
Any help gratefully received

And there's this thread: elan-f14/wiring-loom-where-does-run-behind-the-dash-t19423.html

I've just re-done mine, happy to try to answer any specific questions.

Thanks for the pictures and thread discussion connections, haven't done mine yet but getting close to that part, was looking for this kind of info since I wasn't the one who took the car apart...and likely would have forgotten routing details anyway....
