67' RS Rear Wiring

Greetings all,

Have a 67' RS and a new rear wiring harness for my Turkey weekend project. One the end of the harness that goes to the fuse box... the new wiring harness has a plug. On the fuse box I don't see a plug (unless it's on the back) All the wires are screwed into the fuse box terminal.

Am I missing something (besides experience)?

Re: 67' RS Rear Wiring

The connector for the rear harness is at (or behind) the top of the drivers side kick panel.

Re: 67' RS Rear Wiring

Ohhhhh...

THNX, now I'm missing a little less experience!

Any secrets to getting the kick panel off?

Re: 67' RS Rear Wiring

You won't need to take the whole thing off (thank the Lord!)
If you pop the rear off the door pinchweld, you should be able to pull it out far enough to fish the harness.

You'll be able to get to the connector over the top, it will pull right up.

THNX,

Can you clarify "door pinchweld"? I'm learning as I go... and loving every minute!

Re: 67' RS Rear Wiring

Where the back of the kick panel wraps around the door opening.

A "pinchweld" is anyplace where 2 peices of metal are butted up and spot welded together. Probably the most "famous" pinchweld is where the floor meets the rocker, under the car. There is also a pinchweld all around the door opening, and many other places.

Re: 67' RS Rear Wiring

Thnx,

I'm assuming that since this "pinch welded" that the weld or similar seal will need to be replaced? If so, what type of seal / sealer?

In other postings I've read of differences between a/c and non a/c kick panels. Besides the vent in non a/c cars is there any difference to breaking the weld / pulling the kick panel off?

Mine is an a/c car.

Re: 67' RS Rear Wiring

naaa, nothing will need to be replaced. The kick panel just wraps around to cover the edges and make it look good. You can pop it off carefully, and pop it back on when you are done. I use a 1" putty knife that I heated up and bent into a U shape, and wrapped in duct tape to keep from scratching any paint. When I was younger (lol!) I could pop em on and off with my fingers.

Other than the vent, there won't be a difference with the kick panels.

THNX,

I'm anxious to get my back lights working so I can drive it somewhere besides around the neighborhood / nearby back roads.
