    Due to my shoulder injury I've been messing with the wiring looms...

    Golf one is now stripped and labelled, ready to be plugged in. Van one is now removed in readiness! 👍

    I must admit it's quite stressful... Not wanting to disturb anything else, and cause me future problems.
    I've gone for the read, read, read again, then do! 👍
    But the more you look at it, the more it makes sense. After stripping the golf one, you get a good idea of what's what, just hope i remember it all when it comes to putting it all back in... 🤔

    I found the longest 1/4" socket extension i could find, with some wobble bits - out it came, but it still needed brute force to pull it off the brake pedal. 😉
