HDC repair

Postby discovery99 » Sun 05 Feb 2012 2:39 pm

Hi all, does anyone know which way round the wires go back on when soldering them back.
Its a 2ltr XEDI Freelander 1 if that helps.

Regards

Which wires?

The Haynes manual for the TD4, shows all connections to be plugs / sockets, so no wiring needs to be altered / soldered. Is the L series wired differently...? :?

it doesn't mater you can do it either way, here is how I did mine

unscrew the top of the shifter and it is easy to remove the warning ring, the trier and the spring,

take of the screw and the switch comes of easy,
this time instead of loosing time rewiring the plug I've just eliminated it and welded a electrical wire from a brocken home aplliance for extra protection

put it all back on the shifter and redoo the wiering with an electrical connector
