So the wagon 7.5 euro tail light harness is so much easier than the GTI/R sequential turn harness install.
Helped a guy from the local mk7 FB group do the bpm tuning light and harness install. Trim is cake, the wire boots suck. Undoing the bottom is easy, tops always snap probably because it's blind.
Found these in an old post on repairing the wire boots.
Long story short:
Going to print a set for this guy and for myself, turns what ends up being a 1 time use release into a reusable one.
On my first attempt I snapped the top lock of the boots as well. Ever since I just don’t unlock them when I have to run wires through the boots. Just gently run a wire snake, big zip tie, … through it first. Attach the wires with tape to snake and gently pull the snake back. When it feels it might get stuck massage the boot while you keep gently pulling. Has worked on quite a few cars for me so far.
That's a great idea I never even thought about (obviously lol). My wire snake is a little too stiff to get through without undoing the boot, but leadnig a zip tie through first...
All these great ideas after I already snapped my third set of boots and sealed them up with silicone
