I ordered the wiring harness, a HRW switch and a relay to connect up the glass HRW in the replacement hood on my MK1 car (the fuse box was already fitted). Everything fitted in a few minutes, apart from the final connections to the HRW element itself. The spade terminals on the trailing wires from the HRW element did not match those on the end of the wiring harness, so I had to adapt them. Other than that, a simple job. The HRW warning light in the instrument cluster lights up when it switched on and the switch itself is illuminated when the lights are on.
The wiring harness is expensive, but it is a genuine Mazda part, so not surprising. Usual excellent delivery and technical advice. Thanks Alex.
