Help to identify mysterious connector

Recommended Posts

Posted (edited)

During repair of the top mechanism on a 1997 boxster 986 2,5 tiptronic,  I found a black connector crushed by the roof mechanism, in the left side of the car. The connector has to pins and wires (relatively thick, around 2,5-3mm). One wire is brown, the other is white/green. The wires come from the lower part of the car, and comes up where the seatbelt goes up from the floor, on the left hand side near the b-pillar.


I tried to find the counterpart where the connector should go, but I cannot find anything in that area. No equipment seems to be u/s. Only thing is a check engine light, related to the variocam - but I doubt these to wires are related to that.


Anyone who can identify this connector/wires, what they are powering, and where the counterpart is supposed to be located?

Possibly the rear window defroster connector for the hard top?
