It's at the repairers.
They can't get the bonnet open because the cable has melted and frozen and they don't want to damage the carbon bonnet.

Toasty.

Yurg, that looks nasty! Hopefully, a simple plug-and-play replacement elements to fix. Watching avidly. Neko.

The insurance company has written it off. Something to do with lifetime repairs and the age of the car.
I have bought the car back.
Because it is so old, the car does not have to be de-registered and does not show up at the RMS as a write off.
I got some quotes to do the loom and they were frankly a bit scary.
So in the spirit of this whole deal, and with nfi about electrics, I'm going to have a bash at it myself.
A mate of mine has an intact coupe that he has kindly offered me (with the exchange of some cash of course) so I can go and remove the loom from it.
That will be going into my car, and if it still doesn't go, then I'll call in an expert.

Work on my car starts today.

Glad you kept the car. It is only wires so a little tracing and splicing I am sure that you will get things worked out.

Good luck with the repairs. Wiring can cause some major headaches, but I'm pretty sure you will succeed!

Here is what I have learned so far.
The loom goes from the passenger side side indicator, across the front of the car, back to the fire wall and across that too.
Through a hole at the rear of the drivers side guard, across the car just under the front window, down past the ecu in the passengers footwell under the carpet and under the passenger seat.
It necessitates the whole dash and crashpad coming out amongst other things.

This is the full disaster pulled from a friends junker HR31 earlier today.

OUT! all 8 metres and 87 plugs of it.

This means I am half way.
Actually past halfway because I've already taken the loom out of the other car.

Having another wiring loom at least should save you the agony of tracking down the inevitable "why doesn't it work" after replacement. At least you should be able to rely on the wire loom color coding insted of asking "which of these twenty black wires that I installed is the bugger?"

That is a giant harness. You going to fix it or just put the other one in?
