dont use wd40...if your connector block is clean and dry, do the wiring loom under the wheel arch as described but use electrical connector silicon on the block this will seal the block and keep out any moisture.

The wires are related to windscreen wiper/washer functionality, but from your picture those wires look like they have been soldered or crimped up now to resolve the problem anyway.

Thanks for your reply. I did a little more investigating and it looks lime they have been soldered onto extended new wire and the joins have been shrink wrapped. Looms like a good job by whoever did it. There is no moisture anywhere so Im hoping that it's going to be no further worry. Will keep an eye on it.

Some more pics of the repair....

Water got in there once, It will get in there again!

Only way to stop is to seal the loom in the wheel arch

This happened to me a year or so ago during the first bad winter with heavy snow. My wipers started coming on by themselves then the intercooler spray was going by itself.

Took it to The Garage Motherwell and Marc traced it to the multiplug and main pwoer wire through the passengers footwell. When he called martin at AA Autiobreakers for a loom he instantly asked if it was for the passengers loom. Marc did a great job diagnosing then individually soldering all the connection and sealing up the hole where the wire passes through the arch/bulkhead.

I have pics of the damaged plug i'll try and upload. I would urge everyone to check theirs as it is a potential fire risk. Would be worth making this a sticky thread.

As said above mine happened during the heavy snow where the snow must have been kicking up into the arches.
