RHD wiring loom to LHD
 
Anyone done this ? Any tips.

I'm thinking of getting a donor LHD loom to get some of the wire from. This is for a S50B32 swap so I know I can't use the harness directly, but thinking it might be easier to run a few wires rather than changing the length of most of them

i remember reading a thread on BF.C where it was ultimately concluded that its easier to buy the RHD harness. AFAIK its a couple hundred.

I have a RHD harness already. It's just that lots of wires have to get lengthened and shortened. A LHD harness from a north american car is 99% the same.

I'm guessing you don't recall the thread ?

Is it ok to just extend the ECU to dashboard wires to fit? (I am putting the clocks from the 2.5 into mine).

Apart from engine and speed info are the connections the same form 1.9 to 2.5tdi (both '98)?

Not sure about the connections beting the same for a tdi. But I am extending mine for the s50b32
