awesome thanks ray. i have all the wires etc from a Ghia so its not an issue, but (as i have ABS) the work i'll be doing as opposed to what we did with gregs will be cut in half - so keeping it just to the dash loom etc makes things a lot easier! :)

At least you're not fitting it to an XH (hardest of the lot) - although I'm nearly to testing stage - I doubt if anyone will do same. :shock:

Yeah the dash doesn't really take that long to get out - if you've done some wiring through the firewall for mods, you can simply mark and cut them, and fit connectors in case you have to pull the dash again in the future.
I take it you'll be replacing the airbox - but you can fit the components to the existing airbox, Fan speed controller will need to have the internal plate rivets drilled (x3) and the plate removed, and the hole cut bigger (you can see where to cut by shining a light on the area).
Blend door motor is hardest as the rear mount can't be accessed. You can modify the mounting to sit the motor flush with the airbox front end, and fashion a link using the old blend door link rod from the blend door arm to the motor arm (drill and split pin). Had no choice in the XH - simply no room.

yeah i've got all the parts & have taken a couple of dashes out before, so it'll be done once with all the parts - which was the entire reason for the wreck! :)

heaterbox/wiring/sensors/looms etc are all sitting in the garage, plus i have another car to drive so i don't need to get mine back on the road ASAP - it'll give me 2 weeks max to get it done, but i hope to get it done a lot quicker than that!

sorry to have to bump this - i think i'm slight confused about the ambient temp sensor still, and where it plugs into! :?

the ambient runs from the front bumper, to the white control box behind the dash? are the wires part of the engine bay looms? i looked at the front of the bumper but couldn't see any spare plugs :?

cheers!

ray - just to clarify - i need not change the engine bay looms? just the dash loom? (on the basis i have the plugs for the ambient temp sensor already running to the front)?cheers big ears!
Fraser, no engine looms need changing - the Amb sensor lines will be there (AFAIK you have ABS). You'll most likely find the wires stop at the big white connector behind the fuse panel - have a look for them when the dash is out - white/blue and red/white. If you're changing the dash loom, should be plug & play - Greg will no doubt advise you there (especially if there's a sniff of Ale nearby).
I only added the CC looms, so I needed to add the extra connections.

Good luck . . . :P

Well mate, further to the above - have a look at the horn plug, it should be a 4 pin job - two pins are used for the horn/s, there should be white/blue and red/white wires coming from the engine bay into it, and they stop at the plug - they are your Amb air sensor wires. The sensor itself pokes through the air deflector below - you'll see a hole in the centre for this.

The plug is part of the horn loom. If you have a fairmont, you get a plug with two horn plugs and a ambient plug. For the rest of us, you need to splice in some wires. But they are there - and colour matched to what the doco says. And they go all the way back to the CC unit, so no major wiring task required.
