Good idea for a thread. I had been wondering about those loom retainers recently.
So now i have just cut it off and can get at the crash sensors to give them a clean.
Now i need a tool to remove the nuts in the picture. What is the tool called so i can get one ?
Thanks

Are you sure you need to remove the crash sensors? On my car, the air bag lights kept coming on. When I would pull the error codes with my scantool, it was the left front crash sensor. I disconnected my battery, waited 30 minutes and then disconnected the connectors on the crash sensors, sprayed them with contact cleaner and then reconnected them. I cleared the error codes and my problem has been solved.

Hi Rob ,
I cleaned the connectors that are a push fit a foot or so higher up with contact cleaner spray.
My fault code was for right side but i cleaned both to be sure .
Then tried to clear with the scantool without success. I searched rennlist and found posts by
Adrian Streather in which he states that you have to clean the sensor and the wiring loom connector pins ?

Turbo glad to hear it .. and Re your first post:

You don't need to cut off the loom retainers ...
Just pry them off with a small screw driver first to make a gap big enough for
the back of a small claw hammer or pry tool if you have one ...
as LeMass Tom said

Are any of the holes on the ear parcel shelf for breathing or anything crucial .. or can they be plugged/covered over? I see some of them are taped but others ie closer to the rear glass aren't,
The vents are at the side in the rear seat area, see the slot just to the right of the door latch?


they have plastic 1 way flappers to allow overpressure out and keep noise and elements out

Hi folks,

When I removed the rear blower to access the lambda sensor I found this un-connected connector. Any idea what it's for and should I re-connect it (to where?)

Thanks
Chris

My C4 uses that connector. I can't remember off the top of my head what its for. Maybe the cruise control?

are there differences between US and european bumpers (front and rear), apart from the license plate recess size? do US cars have impact bumpers and if so are they deeper? what about the bumper supports?

+1, cruise. There should be a plastic cylindrical retainer type clip toward the bottom of the bracket w/ all the connections. That's where the two connector halves meet and reside.

Thanks guys! My C4 doesn't have cruise control, so is this a redundant plug (that would only plug in if I had cruise)?
