Accidentally Ripped Out Some Wires

I was working on installing my Katzkin leather covers and accidentally Ripped out some wires on my passenger seat. Thankfully the wires and their connectors are all in one piece, but unfortunately I don't know which wire goes where.

I am hoping somebody can take a look under their manual passenger seat and snap a pic or reply with their configuration.

The wires run from the seat to the left side of the seat track and plug into a relay that is bolted onto the track.

I just don't want an airbag to blowup in my case e or not to work.

Accidentally Ripped Out Some Wires

Once they are seated back in that connector I would drop a few dabs of hot glue on the end towards the back of the connector, just to make sure they don't back themselves out later on.

Re: Accidentally Ripped Out Some Wires

FYI, Airbag/SRS use yellow connectors.

There is a little tang on the pin on the end of the wire. I would suggest VERY carefully making sure it is bent outwards just a tad so it catches properly in that connector since these were ripped out. If it is damaged, I'd probably buy a new pin from an electronics retailer. This is a bit more reliable than just the hot glue, as it keeps the connection from loosening better.
And then add the hot glue--keeps cruft out if nothing else.

Re: Accidentally Ripped Out Some Wires

Yes I bent the pins upward, thanks for the advice. !! Learned that from computer wire sleeving...such a tedious long project.

I'll have to check out WK2jeeps website. Never knew about. But im loving this forum, lots of knowledgeable contributors and a great community.

Sometimes when pins are pulled from a connector regardless if the tabs are bent back to normal, they may still be loose and can come back out. Hence why I suggested hot glue AFTER they are re-seated. Not as the primary way to repair his problem.
