In-dash tail switch install

Recommended Posts

There's a switch in the drivers side footwell fusebox that allows you to manually raise and lower the tail. Problem is while your driving it is not very easy (or safe) to locate it.

So here's the install procedures for fitting an in-dash tail switch.

Why would you want to do this: Well the tail automatically lifts as 75mph and automatically lowers at 38mph. The problem with this is that 75mph is 5mph above the national speed limit here in the UK. The police have cottoned on to this feature.

If they see a carrera with the tail up they'll book you for speeding. One way to get around this is to fit the tail switch in your dash. Then if the police pull you over for speeding all you have to say is "but ociffer, I luv posing around with my tail up. See this switch, well I just flip it and up comes the tail. I wuz only doing 45 honest"

And of course you were only doing 45 ;)

Cheers Poursha.....just thought I would contribute some ;)

Notice I put your "light" mod in. Works a treat.

I have a few more DIYs planned:

Fitting an aftermarket audio power amp and sub (and false bonnet floor)

Fitting the Parrot CK bluetooth adaptor.

Wiring an iPod direct.

Wiring both sided rear fog lamps.

These are mods I have already done but can easily reverse engineer

for instructional purposes.

All being well (and weather permitting), coming soon.
