got motor in. got engine loomb on it (S3 loomb with S3 ecu) then there are a few spots where i cant plug the new into the old. main ones being the two brow connectors that come off the engine loomb before it goes through the firewall. and a four pin brown connector that is on the longest part of the engine loomb and joines another one that comes from the car loomb that comes from the fuse/relay boar.
so. i get the S3 car loomb. it is mostly there the above mentioned four pin connector has a few broken wires but can be fixed and a few things have been cut but i think it can be sorted. my problem is that if i take out the old loomb and put the new one in i dont know if the things it has to plug into (other than the S3 engine loomb which it of course matches partners for the three plugs i mentioned above.) like will it work with the S1 instrument cluster? this was going to be a problem as the tacho has a differant signal from S1 to S3. S1 uses coil(i think...) will indicator/wiper switches work? will the old switches work? they dont plug strait in. (hazzard lights-fog light-rear windscreen demister etc) and is the plug that goes from the fuse/relay board to the fuel pump etc going to be the same?
essentially can it be done or is it more like impossible? i am farly sure that i am going to have to swap the car loombs for it to work. and if this is possible where to i go to get the relays that go on the car loomb? the ones that are at the front LHS of the car? i have one of four or is it one of five? that are required. can the plugs be rewired using the relays off the S1? i have all these.
any ideas welcome.
