Wiring route through front bulkhead


Recommended Posts

  • Gold FFM

Without giving to much away for now as regards my ongoing 'Project Evora Update', I do need to ask for a bit of help on this bit.

I'm intending to fit DRLs as part of my upgrade. Rather than just splicing into a suitable bit of wiring under the front clam, I'd prefer to piggy-back off the relevant fuses in the front footwell fusebox but so far I haven't been able to locate an accessible route for the new wiring through the bulkhead. I had hoped to follow an existing cable but they all seem to follow a convoluted route and then disappear behind other panels rather than simply going straight out through a conveniently positioned hole.

There is a route but I can’t remember exactly where. 🤔
This is exactly what I did when fitting DRLs to mine some 5 years ago but, alas, i no longer have the car😟

All I can recall atm is that there is a way trough the bulkhead at around the mid point at the front which brought the cable in by the centre tunnel so easy access to the fuse box from there. I found it after taking the arch liner out and front under tray off.

Sorry I can’t be of more help🙄. If I remember anymore I’ll let you know👍69F841C3-139A-4535-BEDE-2D78D733B1F1.thumb.jpeg.d615bcfc9f8b47a3b416a1df2fcf1f4b.jpegA737C8E3-142F-4802-8448-ECACBF330E48.thumb.jpeg.f91f9171597a33288135d50298a95fe7.jpeg

@PaulCP Thanks for the clue, Paul. I knew that there had to be a way through somewhere but I've been looking from above. Oh well, undertray off it is then - what's another panel removed when you're already at this stage .................................... :rolleyes: :D.

Use the gap where the water comes in from the AC to drench the carpets?

Alcohol. Sex. Tobacco. Drugs. Chocolate.  Meh! NOTHING in this world is as addictive as an Evora +0. It's not for babies!

Yehey! DRL wiring now runs all the way from the front bumper to the fusebox, thanks to the pointing in the right direction by @PaulCP.

Getting the undertray off was, shall we say, challenging. I don't think it's ever been off before so none of the fixings were going to give up without a fight. One (isn't there always that one? :rolleyes:) near the middle, so nicely inaccessible from above, had its captive nut no longer captive but it eventually succumbed to an angle grinder, a cold chisel and a hammer. Once the sheet of alloy was out of the way, there right next to the heater/ventilation fan was a lovely big rubber bung with a major section of the harness going through it towards the centre console and an earthing point conveniently alongside.

Short time later, new wiring was threaded in towards the fusebox, ready for the connections and general tidying-up of the install at the weekend, :D.

Glad you found it @Alfa2Evora but, TBH, more pleased that my memory wasn’t letting me down which would have sent you on a wild goose chase 🙄

Yes, I recall the convenience factor of the nice proximity of the entry point to the fuse box and the very convenient earth point👍
