    Awesome, thought that must be the case. Will strip out the dash and headlights on Tuesday so it will become easier to see it all. We assume this plug near the horn on the front passenger side is for an alarm? It traces back to one of the fuse box relays... Brown/Green and Brown wires.

    Ok, great, I don’t need them, more wires to seal off and not worry about How do the side indicators connect then?

    Awesome thanks! My old wiring has obviously been changed and that relay stuck behind the dash I think. The only other engine bay wires we are stuck on are Purple/Blue. Two on the passenger side, one on the drivers on the wires going to the headlights. Side indicators or hazard indicator? Can’t see anything else for the side indicators....?

    Ok, rear loom in and working well starter serviced, new alternator being fitted, making good progress... Looking at the new loom (1994-1996) it has this relay part and big thick wires in the engine bay that I don’t currently have, can anybody explain its purpose please ( we are guessing by tracing the wires, and as the loom is heavily taped up it’s hard to see what goes where etc)

    Lucas alternators - .TR or .C8 ?

    New ones are made from plastic it seems... going to use the old one, cheap local one on the reconditioned old one if it turns up tomorrow looking ok...

    Thanks, though at about 120 quid with South African tax it’s a bloody expensive piece of plastic!!!

    Phoned and mailed them. They are really only interested in providing customer support when you’ve made an order etc, not on what a part number is etc
  9. I’m looking to put in a new 65 amp alternator with my new 1994 200TDI wiring loom, being retro fitted to a 1991 200TDI. LRDirect list 2 Lucas models as STC234G.TR and STC234G.C8. Any idea what the difference is please? https://www.lrdirect.com/STC234-Alternator-A127-65Amp-Lucas-No.-242/?keep_https=yes Do they come with a pulley attached? Doesn’t look like it, if not what extra parts do I need to order please? Shipping to South Africans so keen to get it correct first time :)

    On YouTube, look up roamingtheoutback and Britannia restorations. Both have great advice and practical solutions to this... I’m on a really slow African connection so can’t find them exactly for you etc sorry

    Having fun doing it, learning a lot... here testing the rear loom before installing it....

    Ok, thanks. I highly appreciate your answers Given I have the Wright Off-road matting on there it means all 3 seats out, bit of a drama etc. Maybe just cut the existing wire and solder to the new would work.....?

    Oh, ok, we had been thinking it was the hand brake without having looked at it yet. I have a stubby R380, will the access be any easier? Can you do it just from underneath or will I need to take the metal gearbox plate off etc? Update: when you say Difflock warning light, what do you mean please? This is different from the ‘Difflock is Engaged’ light? There are two?

    Thanks again. Making progress next question though! On the rear wiring loom where it goes down from the engine bay and starts to run along the chassis (or in it as it used to do) is a Black/Blue wire that sticks out of the taped loom and has a female plug on it. It’s not being used in my current loom, just taped up unused, but then I don’t have a full set of dash lights connected. It’s not in any diagrams or colour charts. Any ideas please?
