MG MGF Technical - connecting TF headlights on MGF

Hello,

I was wondering does anybody have the partnumber of the piece of wiring needed to connect TF headlights on the MGF wiring. I saw it once but forgot to write it down.
If anyone has any other tips or tricks on this conversion please comment.

Thanks,

Hello Chris,

Thanks for your reply, so by altering and rewiring the original plug al can be done. This will mean cut the wiring from the plug, leaving 4 inches or so and reconnect the headlight wiring and indicator wiring to the plug. This then also means that all the internal metal sockets of the plug get electrical contact with the headlight metal strips.

Thats correct Marten, if you look at the inside of the plug you will see a rectangular block (male) this fits into the TF headlamp (female)so you only need to remove the outer casing of the male plug, use a Stanley knife or junior hacksaw. Then it is just a case of using a meter to test which connection goes where and reconnect the wires in the correct order.

The connector does seem loose because there are no clips to hold in place but mine has been fine since March and has never come away.
