Default Re: XE Rear Doors - Wiring

I do believe you're right that it is PVC insulation on the wires. Unfortunately by the time we found out there was an issue, it was to late. One doesn't think of preventative maintenance on a car as including treatment of the wires. Well maybe the connection points.

I will try your trick on some alligator test leads I have. All the boots for the clips have become so hard I can't squeeze them, much less use them.
