Exposed Wiring

Post by LyndaK »

I am new to this forum, so apologies if this question has already been addressed before (for the record I did have a scout around and couldn't find any references to it). Last year I purchased a Ford Ranger Dual Cab 4WD XLT PX3 2022 and have recently taken the tub off and swapped it over for a tray. In the process, I have been left with exposed wiring on the rear of the cab. Does anyone know of a moulding/cover that I can purchase to protect the wiring loom, which I believe is for the rear lighting?
Cheers,
Lynda

Welcome Lynda,

I’m not sure exactly where you are talking about and which loom. Maybe put up a few pics and it might help.

Jaycar electronics sells split loom tubing in various sizes, this is one example, https://www.jaycar.com.au/25mm-loom-tub ... 9d8db4b937

You can purchase convoluted tubing which is another name like Jayco's product from any automotive stores such as Autobarn, Supercheap, Bursons, Repco or good old Bunnings.
With cable ties this will adequately fix your issue.

I assume you are talking about this...

Maybe try GMF. They make protection plates for other exposed wiring. They might have something for this.

When you take the tub off for a tray you have the connector for the light in the bar behind the cab LHF and one for the 12v supply LHR.

You can cut the connector off the tub loom, tape or heatshrink the wires and plug them in, or just cover the connector with plastic bag and cable tie or similar.

Thank you everyone for your responses, they are most appreciated. As naddis01 suspected, the problem is as per the photo included in his/her post. As suggested I shall try GMF, and let you know how I go.

Mine had done 127,000km with no damage. But covering it is a good idea.

I did have to protect my parking sensors, stones gave them a hammering.
