wiring removal from trunk area, which way?

Hi, I'm starting the serious business of removing stuff from my 67 RS conv.

Here is my question. After things taking way too long, I've finally gotten the lenses, housings, lights, etc. removed from the back of the car.

I'm left with the attached lights and, what's the word, light housings, etc. attached to the wiring which runs behind the driver side cocktail shaker, then semi-under the dropoff? Anyway, all of the things (light bulbs, etc.)still attached to the wiring are way too big to pull back through to the front of the car. Is there a disconnect of some sort to pull all of that back through the trunk?

If so where is it?

If I'm completely lost, let me know!

Thanks,

Jeff

Re: wiring removal from trunk area, which way?

I am not that familiar with convertibles but I don't believe there is a connector by the top area. If you remove the rear seat you should see the harness coming from the rocker panel area going over the wheel well to the left side of the seat and top compartment/area.

You may want to go to the Convertibles section to ask this question. Some of the guys that have done this may not be checking the Electrical & Wiring section.

No disconnect. It has to be pulled forward.

Re: wiring removal from trunk area, which way?

My early (10B) 67 RS Convertible has a disconnect located behind the drivers side kick panel, just in front of the door hinge mounting area (lower hinge). This means you have to remove the e-brake, kick panel, wire covers, carpet, remove the rear seat, etc., before you can fish it out of there. Hope this helps.

Re: wiring removal from trunk area, which way?

I believe the problem is getting the harness around the left side of the rear seat and top well. If you disconnect the dash connector will the harness just pull around that area?

I don't know any other way you could do it. You defiantly need the seat out.
Mines not a conv. But I don't remember having much of an issue doing it by myself.

Yeah, so last night I took off the e-brake, and kick panel. I ran out of time (I already have the seats out, etc). I think that the rear harness does have a disconnect up in that driver side area. I'll confirm tomorrow.

The issue that I found when I tried to pull it forward was that the bulb fittings and such I think would go around the driver side cocktail shaker, but the wiring then ran down underneath the trunk drop-off (at least I think that's where it was going), and wouldn't pass through the small gap.

Anyway, I hope to be able to examine this more closely tomorrow, which actually has turned into today here on the east coast.

Thanks all,

Jeff

My 69 conv has a connector in the area of the driver's side rear wheel well - don't know if 67 is the same

It might have slid down between the quarter and the outer wheelwell. I had that happen and just had to wrestle with it a bit. The harness should have a plastic sheath around it to protect it and also keeps it from getting pinched stuck in that spot.

Exactly what I found today. I had to jostle it around some then I got it free. I had to be a little bit careful feeding it behind the cocktail shaker, just enough room to get it all back through the car.
