S3 Electrical Diagram

PostPost by: fattogatto » Fri Mar 10, 2017 3:39 am

This may be a silly question, but . . . .

in looking at the S3 diagram I have most of the wires go to a long, thin, vertical box with cross hatching and proceed out the other side. Is this box indicating the firewall?

Thanks,

yes and it represents where the engine bay loom connects to the body/dash loom.

I should've also said that the connection (all the bullet connectors) actually happens just inside the body side of the firewall. So engine bay loom wires all go through a grommet/firewall hole and into the body where they then connect to the body/dash loom. :D

Thanks. Installing a fuse block with relays and will be able to rid myself of many of the bullet connectors.
