My drivers side speaker stopped working the other day and after a bit of investigation, I traced the problem to a broken wire at the electrical connector between the door and the car. There were 2 other broken wires, all very close to the moulded bit of the connector. A couple of other wires were showing signs of wearing so I decided to replace the connector using the replacement part available from Peugeot (Part no 6542.VQ for about

looks pretty straightforward, how much free play is there on the loom and how much do you need to srtip off the inside of the car?

personally I would have staggered the joins and soldered+heatshrunk them Smile

Hardly any free play on the loom - which makes staggering joints difficult and is one of the reasons I went for crimps.
Only need to strip enough for the crimp.

If soldering - I would definately go for the new rubber cover.

I got a loom repair kit a few years ago and tried to get the driver's door boot as that was torn. They got me a rear door one. I took it back and they said the front ones were no longer available. I looked on Service Box and found that, although the driver's door boot was not shown, the passenger's one was, and that they are the same.

That might explain why the local pug dealer told me it was included in the kit when ordered it but it wasn't there when I went to pick it up.

You can you get enough access by just releasing the check strap and chocking the door to stop it hitting the wing so you won't need to re-align it.

I will add 2 things though.

Unbolt the single bolt in the hinge (makes putting the door on easier)


I would solder the connections instead of crimping.

Did mine about a year ago and no problems with the crimps, if you have a decent crimp tool (preferably a ratchet one) and decent crimps then it should be fine but there is also nothing wrong with soldering and heat shrinking.

I guess this connector can work with all of the 306s and Xsaras as all of the pins are in the connector, so you just use whichever pin you want.

Nice find! I didn't know such things existed.

you can also get these as 'straight' connectors (unlike this 90 degree door loom) which work with the engine wiring loom where it joins the main engine bay harness

I've had it done on P45 HRM on the right side, NOT a job for the everyday amateur....we soldered and heatshrunk as said...took about 6 hours as there was only a very vague guide at the time and spent ages finding a pin map on the net that was actually some use!
