Default Fender wiring harness tuck

Seeing if anyone has pics of how they moved their wire harness in their fender well when they lowered their WRX/Sti. Recently lowered mine, figured i needed to just trim the plastic liner but im rubbing a little. Im sure i could figure it out but would help to see some ideas.

thanks

if you aren't having problems, don't touch it.

where are you rubbing? the fender liner or the fender itself?

you dont need to do anything about the harness if you still have your fender liners. unless you are SLAMMED its not a problem.

The harness? Why would you do that? It can be held higher. I would never tie it to the suspension of all things. You are asking to get stranded on the side of the road!

you are thinking of brake lines/abs lines....

we, and OP, are talking about something COMPLETELY different. were talking about the actual engine harness that is run along the very top of the fender well. You couldn't even pull it down far enough to attach it to your coilovers even if you wanted to.

Yes the engine harness that runs along the top.

I rolled my fenders and they clear just fine. Its when im turning is when I rub the fender liner. I was mainly looking for a pic of someone who is slammed and how they moved or relocated their harness as to not get rubbed on by the tires.

if you still have your liners, you don't need to worry about it.

you aren't low enough

I was going to say... There isn't even enough wire to get it back there!

you seem confused.

the only reason people have issues with the harness is because they are this low:



And only if you hit a significant bump at speed....which you really shouldn't be driving like if you are lowered like that.

If you are rubbing on the liner, thats an easy fix.

really...youre making it out to be a bigger deal than it really is. I was that low for a period of a few years, without liners, and didn't have 1 problem.

I rubbed through my liner and just barely buzzed my harness. Moved it up and drilled two little holes in the frame rail and ziptied it there. Pretty easy to do once your fender is off.

I was able to do it without drilling anything.
