    If it's not raining after work, I will take a peak.

    A very kind offer Mr Ferret. Hopefully this will shed some light on the OP's concerns....

    Right, i've had a look.

    The yellow plug looks like it's for the window closing feature (If you hold the lock in the locked position with the windows open, then it'll close the windows).

    But, on my car with the winter pack, it has three connectors, 2 white ones, and 1 yellow one. One of the white one's will be for the barrel heater but I can't see where the other one goes too.

    So for you, I am going to guess, that the yellow is for the window closure, but the barrel doesn't support that feature. And the white plug is for the barrel heater, but your car doesn't have that feature.

    Hope this is of some use to you. If you want more info, i'll try my best to get it.

    A picture of the back of one of your handles would be great.

    The handles purchased were from BM (have receipts). How annoying someone would spend £70 a side for the wrong things!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    I'll take a picture of the Saloon, that'll be easy because I don't have to worry about it going back together.

    Just trying to dodge the rain at the moment, then i'm at work this afternoon. So it might have to be tomorrow.

    As revealed



    Rattly bits secured



    New clips all around (the fibre glassing is someone else's)




    May as well call that done for now. Not going to invest £160 in new handles, can't be bothered wandering around a scrap yard for some as they still wouldn't match the ignition.

    Full closure works on the alarm anyway.


    Does this car have EWS and what version?

    Vehicle specification enquiry lists:
    Reg date as 21/10/1994
    Build date Sep 1994 (Wk 38)

    I know it's 2 months too late
    But i've found out what the plugs do:


    Plugs from top to bottom: 1. Heater Microswitch (Grey) 2. Microswitch for the window closure (Yellow) 3. Lock heating element (White)
