    This has been a perfect weekend to crack on with the rear power window retrofit, so first off was to add the additional body loom, this was purchased via the internet for a very reasonable price, it even came with labelled wires and where to fit the pins in the multi-plugs at various locations around the car! I did take a shed load of photos but they where just of my car interior missing most of its sill covers and centre console so not to exciting, however the additional loom runs down the nearside all the way from the REC to the front foot well multi-plug stopping off at the rear door along the way, then at the carpet seam under the front seats the loom splits and travels over to the offside and to the rear door, all secured to the original body loom and safely tucked away, here's just a couple of photos:





    Next up was to run the door wires down the rubber tubes to the plugs, the plugs where taken apart to allow the new wires to be added:




    Once done for both rear doors it was time to start stripping the door cards off and get the old wiring loom and regulator from the doors, then fit the new door looms and motors. I fitted some trim blanks to fill the old winder handle hole in the card, it doesn't look to bad and will suffice for now








    By doing this conversion I have also gained rear tweeters too which should compliment the lower doors speakers nicely:



    Next job was to replace the drivers window switch with a 4 way version:



    And finally, plugged the laptop in and changed the rear power windows in the REC to present but then I hit a problem, I was unable to access the drivers door module to activate the switches, for some reason this only appears to be a tech 2 job! So for now although the motors have power I am unable to open the windows via any of the switches..

    I also found a couple of plugs at the back of the centre console, as far as I understand this is for rear heated seats and rear twin audio...

    Good work, that drivers door switch looks like it needs a whole instruction manual for that alone

    There's actually only 2 extra buttons over the original, slider for front & rear selection and the button to lock the window control from the front, its does have wind mirror adjust built in which is why it probs looks complicated lol!

    Its probably easier to add stuff to mk3s than the vectra c's. Everything has to go through canbus in the vectra where as the mk3 you can just wire everything to the cig lighter

    PLEASE DO NOT USE THE WORD "REDTOP" ON THIS SITE, THE CORRECT WORD IS "RIDTAP"

    Well its been a while since the last update, massive thanks to Dean for programming the DDM & BCM for rear leccy windows a while back! Ticked a couple more jobs off the list this weekend, rear parking sensors and HID's with led side lights, silver indicator bulbs and night-breakers in the main beam. All fairly straight forward mods so here's some photos:

    Colour coded sensors wired in:


    Head light mods using 6k hids from my old coupe turbo, I will be fitting 5k's in the future but got bored of waiting for the bulbs to turn up!







    Led's:


    HID's should be fitted to all vec's!


    Also stuck a pair of led's in place of the number plate bulbs too:


    Next job is an oil change and a mod to the engine under tray...

    I was about to say no, but then this morning I got the display telling me about the passenger side! Will see how it goes although I do have a planned fix for this..

    Yep, my local MOT station are only worried about beam pattern, never had a problem when these were in the coupe, another planned mod is headlight washers in the future so even more likely to be less of a problem.

    Looking good. I want to fit hids and leds to my audi but seems noone wants to garentee they wont set off the warnings. Its got projector lenses and headlight washers so i think they'll go un noticed.
    Its already had led numberplate lights fitted before i got it and theyve got no faults.

    Although the canbus checks the number plate lights (slight pulse) it doesn't set off any warnings so I'm going to run a pair of wires off that circuit to the side lights that way when I unlock the vec the side lights will come on too (number plate lights do this+come on with the side lights). I will leave the factory side lights connected somewhere in the bay, they will probably come in handy when working under the bonnet in the dark! + the canbus will be happy too.

    Perhaps this is workable on the Audi..

    With regards to the HID's when I first switched them on they were flickering on and off etc and setting off the warnings, so plugged the op-com in and changed the xenons to present and haven't had a problem since.
