was drilling some holes in the floor pan of my EF yesterday while fitting a LPG line.

Does the section of the wiring loom that controls the locking of the doors, opening the boot and fuel flap run across the passengers side floor? Cos I'm pretty dam sure i drilled through it :oops:

Can any one confirm this before i go ripping half the interior out to look under the carpet?

the LPG fuel line runs along side the normal fuel lines - there is about 40cm spacing between each hole and the gas line runs right from the rear axle to the fire wall.

It didn't really bother me untill i realised that you can't lock the rear doors.

Dunno how different the EF-EL wiring is, but EA-ED the main loom runs down the drivers side.
A Smaller part of it crosses under the front passanger seat and goes forwards to the front door jam.
Another small part of that loom goes into the b-pillar.

I dont think anything runs along the rear passanger floor.
