2009 Astra XE
1997 SW2
Default XE Rear Doors - Wiring

Many of you have had this issue with the wiring hardness' that connect the body wiring to the rear passenger doors. Door locks, power windows, rear speakers not working or intermittent. Comes from the wires inside the rubber boots flexing then breaking from fatigue.

I spliced in new wiring to the connector on the right rear door. Then the left rear door started acting up. Finally the right rear is acting up again. Probably right at the connector this time, as that where soldered to.

I've searched the UK and EU sites for replacement options. Pretty pricey once the conversion to Canadian dollars is done, specially if you want 2. Many of the listings are dead-ends as well.

I'm thinking of just hard-wiring directly into the doors. Before I go this route I was wondering if someone had found a cheaper source for the repair kit.
