    Hood Harness Trick?

    Hey all,

    Trying to install the hood section of the wiring harness. Two conectors and start/stop button + trim button. Anybody have a trick for getting these down into the steering colum and through the rubber gromit? I can get them down the steering colum but not through the gromit...

    Any tips would be GREAT!!

    Take the gromet out and spray some silicone lube. slide them 1 at a time. Then install the gromet back to the hole. I might have some pictures here somewhere

    Pull the pins out of the plug, make a note of the wire colours and pin numbers labelled on the plugs

    The gromet comes out and can be put back in? I didn't know that. That sure would make things easier. Jammerman, if you have some pictures that would really help!

    Thanks

    slide the connectors one at a time but together down the steering shaft neck then do the same with the rubber grommet uninstalled in the hull........then reinstall the rubber grommet back in the hull............ reinstall everything else and your GOLD!

    You must have the patience of a man on death row, because I obviously tried that first and it appeared to be IMPOSSIBLE. No way those things were going through that gromet.

    I understand the gromet needs to come out. How do you remove it? Just pull up on it? Or is there something else I should know?

    Thanks

    I'm thinking the sig pic

    Got the harness in today. I can't believe I didn't think of taking out the gromet on my own. It seems pretty sturdy so I assumed it was glued in or something.

    Nevertheless, project complete and sure looks better having the steering assembly put together vs. having the start stop etc hanging out of the hood
