This really is a superb piece of equipment, very well made and designed to near perfection. First, read the instructions and then read them again. On the third or fourth reading, the loom details begin to make sense. With the loom in place, you will need a crimping tool to attach an AMP socket to it with the White, Grey/Black and Black in positions 1, 2 and 3. Fitting the rack is straight- forward and although the allen key for the outside fittings was supplied, a smaller one for the inside was not. Fitting was now completed. All was fine except that the rack's high level stop light did'nt work ! After many hours and one sleepless night, I found that the pre-fitted AMP plug from the rack had been incorrectly wired ! Thanks Mazda for exercising my brain and introducing me to my new best mate Liam who explained that LED systems are positive specific ! With the wires reversed, all then worked as they were designed to. I am delighted with my now fully functioning rack which really does look extremely smart and very retro 1960's. I will, however, be using a Boot Bag with my rack. Unlikely to be carrying a wicker picnic hamper, but never say never.
