Ok cheers mate think I got it now. Know anyone that wants a 1.4 engine? Lol

the plug on the right will stay in the engine bay but yes with the car

I've taken out that main loom that was linked to the ecu,so now that terminal and the 2 plugs you've pictured is that what I leave in the car and the rest I don't need?

In the drivers footwell there is a plug that looks like this:

unplug that all pull the loom up through the bulkhead into the engine bay.

Then at the back of the engine, there is a plug(on the right in the pic below)

Follow that plug back to the alternator and starter motor and remove it from them.

The rest of the wiring can go with the engine as you WILL NOT need it

Hope this helps

I get the charging loom bit but dunno if I'm being a bit thick,don't get the bit 'engine loom plugs back'?? I wish there was people in my area that could come and show me! Lol

engine can go with the full engine loom, basically everything from the plugs in the drivers kick plate forward, all you need is the woring from the engine loom plugs back and the charging loom off the engine that goes from the battery to starter and alternator
