    but seeing that birds nest of wires is part of the reason I have given my bus to someone else to do.

    I have a wiring diagram that I used for my 98 impreza Matt, its probably the same as a forester if you want it?

    Seemed to match mine pretty much spot on.

  15. So, a bit more done on the loom, removing everything that i know is not required like lighting and heater wiring.

    Pile of removed wiring is slowly growing.

    I've also removed the egear box in case i need to use it(have one form an impreza to use at the moment) i need the sensors from it a minimum.

  17. Hung the main wiring loom up in the garage. Hopefully it will make it easier to strip the wires out, i am pretty much doing it one at a time at the moment to make sure i don't just hack it to bits and chop out something important.

    Mrs P has just whispered in my lug oil " You are NOT doing that to our bus" She's getting to be no fun.
