Has anyone installed a new Wolfsberg main harness? Or someone you recommend I contact that has done it. Looks like it goes Inside pass side frame rail? Need help! How to feed New harness front to back? Old harness was previously removed! Can see conduit tube in straight frame section, with boroscope camera! 23 window split bus. Thanks

To answer your question, I use a household style fish tape, it's detailed clearly in a couple of the threads. Send me a PM if you have questions.

I've installed around a dozen Wolfsburg harnesses. I usually tape some bailing wire to the old harnesses when pulling it out so I have a pull wire ready when the new harnesses is ready to install. Since that step was missed id recommend getting a metal fishtape to feed through the pipe.

A piece of string fed through the tube while blowing compressed air is a trick I've used to fish wires through as well.

Good luck
