Yep makes total sense! Hwoever your fuse box is different to mine! Mine has got a sort of 'floor' half way up it so you cant see to the very bottom like yours. But now i defo know where i need to feed the wire. The rubber hose leading down seems very tight, dont know how im gonna get the wire in.
Not that long, you could probably get away with 18" / 450mm, you need to retain enough to keep hold of, you also need enough through into the footwell for you to be able to easily get hold and remove the cable and tape.
I have recently purchased one of these clocks and sensor kits from Ebay. Tested everything before i started and everything seems to be working in order.
So far I have installed the clock in the dash and have run the cables to the outside fuse box. Seem to be experiencing the same problem as "dradus" with the fuse box issues. (two floors and a very tight grommit on the bottom left hand corner). Has anyone found a solution to this problem?
Is the OEM temp sensor slit located behind the number plate am having problems locating it??
I've completed installing the clock. Everything working well and a fairly tidy job.
Although I require a little more length in cable as it can be a little tight in spots, I will do this when the weather decides to brighten up. I gave up with running it through the fuse box so I just made a little insertion in the underside of the rubber(back of fuse box side) which I then ran into the car.
Wireing is all tucked behind the wing trunking and out of sight. Overall am very pleased with the mod and still believe the Puma should have never been without it in the first place. I will Post up pics when I get the chance.
Thanks Flash for all the helpfull step-by-step and pics.
