Even if they are not broken electrical contact will suffer through the corrosion.

Thats the plug that goes out to the wheel arch and i'm certain you will have to seal the loom like i did otherwise the water will return.

Here's my thread on how i did it https://www.lancerregister.com/showth...ght=ACD+lights

By the way If anyone has followed my thread and repaired there loom can you stick some pictures up on my thread please as mine aren't the best. Befores, during and afters

Checked mine today and they are bone dry.

I am still going to do the mod on the loom though.

Just a thought.. how many that have this problem still have the wheel arch liners in place?

I've got mine fitted but the spray off the wheels still gets in between the inner arch and bodywork. This combined with our lovely british weather we get makes it a recipe for disaster.

I have been cleaning up the wires today & i would also take a look at your indicator wires in the wing. The protector sleeve was full of water so i cut the sleeve at its lowest point & left a little gap for the water to run out. Oh & i still have my wheel liners in place.


A little pic of the wires now.

Had my wiring modified at NR Autosport on Tuesday.

The fix entailed removing the bottom-most wires from the affected connector blocks and using aftermarket waterproof connector blocks to reconnect those wires. The new connectors were then resecured above the original connector blocks...

A top job by NR and looks very professional indeed


But posting this has just got me thinking....

The wires that now remain in the original connector blocks have now just become the bottom-most wires. So now I'm wondering whether I will have similar problems with those wires!

No you won't have any further issues as the affected connector block was also re secured above the original connector blocks...

Right side indicators front and side failing

Hi guys my ix has a fault that comes and goes it's the driver side indicators front and side repeater not flashing and inside car fast flashing rear indicator working .it's like a bulb has failed but when I arm the alarm all indicators flash as normal? Could it be the footwell plug do any of these wires control front indicators

Sounds like a blown bulb or faulty relay.

Its worth checking the plugs in the footwell just to be sure. Let us know how you get on.
