    Default Where is XR6A pin 10 in the REC??

    I know I have asked the same Q in this thread http://www.vectra-c.com/forum/showthread.php?t=144377

    But, I thought i'd make a separate thread in the hope it would get better noticed.

    I need to check the supply to the number plate lights.
    My Haynes manual tells me I should be looking at XR6A pin 10 in the REC?

    This post (thanks KenP) shows where XR6A is http://www.vectra-c.com/forum/showpo...04&postcount=3

    But not where pin 10 is. How does the pin numbering work?

    when you take the small plug out of the big plug, then you can see the numbers on them.

    You will have to take out the large connector to remove the small one

    Do I need to disconnect the battery before I remove the connector?

    Also to release the big connector do I just pull the tab at the top up?

    Final question I hope!

    How do you get the tab back into the connector??
    When the plug is back into the socket the tap won't push down.
    When the plug is not in the socket the tab pushes down ok.

    For info:

    In the lower half of connector XR6A there is a smaller white connector block.

    This smaller white block is where the number plate light pin 10 is.

    There are two columns of pins in this block.
    The pin I need is in the right hand column, 2nd from the top.
    The number 1 pin is in the bottom right of this white block.

    I have worked it out.

    You need to push the top part of the connector in first then push the tab down so it automatically pulls the bottom half into the REc.
