C5 mk1 tailgate wiring

Post by rogerc5 »

My 2004 C5 estate has had intermittent faults with the wiper and opening the boot for some time. (Usually OK in warm weather)
Now it's given up the ghost completely- the only thing working is the washer jet and I have to open the boot from inside with a screwdriver.

So it's off to an auto electrician for sorting.
Can anyone tell me if there is a short loom repair kit for where the wires emerge from the headlining or do you have to cut and solder one by one?
Looks like this is a common fault in older cars of different makes.

Thanks

No loom repair section that I'm aware of.

Yup. And not so old ones sometimes. The Citroen Xsara was well known for this.
