    Tips on welding cracked strut tower in XG ute

    I killed one of my Xe’s Cracking between the upper control. All caused by a new set of tyres and a crap wheel alignment. Every so often would grabbed the front guard. Didn’t fix scraped it my bad. if you have the time replace as much as you can with doner parts. A few layers make up this area, and it cops a pounding Dale

  5. Single rails are good, stop the gear stick from coming out, the only issue you will have is the selector rail seal. Dale

    Xd headlights into XF

    As sparky Dave said, the xf plugs were once available off the shelf at Autobarn been a while since I bought them. Jay Dee auto cables in Baywater sold them as well Dale

    XE Gauge Cluster

    Hard to explain and to hard on the run to draw and post a picture on the run but as you suggested I would run a new wire and join it at the cluster plug and see how he goes.

    XE Gauge Cluster

    deankdx The oil sender works resistance to ground.the ground is though the body of the sender as resistance changes oil pressure gauge changes. This being the case the wire should run from the sender to the cluster with no interference from supply or earth “””””With it unplugged at both ends, cluster check if it has +12v there( shorted to 12v).”””””””” cluster un plugged and. Wire off the oil sender depending if multi meter or just a test lamp I would check if +12v is being introduced in to the wire, wire is shorted to +12 volt Multimeter - place the black lead to earth and the red lead on the wire, if you measure 12v the the wire is shorted to +12volt. test lamp - connect the clip on the lead to earth and touch the probe on the wire, if it lights up the wire is shorted to +12v “”””””Check if is grounded to -12v (shorted to Earth)””””” Multimeter - place the red lead to +12v and the black lead to the wire, if you measure voltage the wire it is shorted to the earth. testlamp - connect the clip on the lead to the wire and and the the probe to +12v, if it lights up the wire is shorted to earth.

    Just keep in mind Xd Xe have oil senders. And some dash looms have less wires(budget/basic loom) have done many dash changes, instrument panel with no issues only ever had one loom that did’t have all the loom wires. Do a resistance check from the from the sender to the to dash plug. With it unplugged at both ends, cluster check if it has +12v there( shorted to 12v). Check if is grounded to -12v (shorted to Earth)
