1999 v70r wiring harness interchange

Post by fairmont50 »

I would like to replace the engine / underhood harness in my 1999 v70r and need to know what various models will interchange. Most of the current harness has the covering falling off and is a bit brittle from age and miles. I am assuming that anything from a 1999-2000 turbo s70, v70 or even a later c70 will work but would like confirmation if possible.

The plastic wire conduit can be replaced. You can get Automotive wire conduit at any auto parts store. You can find it on Ebay, Amazon ... ect. You can get it in colors other then black and make it purdy.

The conduit is split along the length. Remove the old tape and ties pull the old off. Cut the new to length and press it over the wires, tape and/or tie in in place.
