Anyone able to tell me what this orange with green stripe wire is for? It's running under the drink holder/power window switches pannel. It's a single orange wire.

For some reason I thought it was for the handbrake, but I can't see where it connects...

nah i dont think it goes there, that looks liek the white clip that holds the center console donw, can you see the little black wire where there is a gap in the carpet near the left of the handbrake, trace that and i think you will find your answer, other than that, it shouldve already been conected

You were on the money, seems that when I relayed the carpet I covered up the other end of that black wire in the completely wrong direction... All done now.
