Unplugged connectors

Post by peter walker »

Hi there, sorry if it's been asked before, I did a quick search but couldn't find the answer.

I just bought a REV2 MK2, and in the engine bay there are a couple of connectors that are just totally unplugged. What are these for?

Hi and congrats on the new car. I don't know what they're for but they're present (and unplugged) on my rev2 too so I wouldn't worry about them. I presumed they used the same loom for the turbo models and these were spare.

I think one is for an idle up valve if you have aircon ,

The single pin plug near the air vent is for the aircon compressor's magnetic clutch.
The two pin plug near the firewall would be for the aircon idle up.

If you've not got aircon it makes sense that both are unplugged.

Hi guys,

Thanks for the warm welcome 😊

It doesn't have Aircon, so that makes perfect sense. Would it make sense to tape them up to avoid corrosion, or is that just unnecessary? Thanks very much for the info πŸ‘

I also have a slipping clutch, does anyone have a recommended mechanic near Hitchin, Herts?

I don't think you're far from Pacific Works, now known as Drift Limits. I went there a couple of times when I lived down south. I found that service varied depending who was working, but they did a good job on my cluth and cambelt.
