This evening, whilst taking the battery tray out, for a sniff around- I found this stray lead.

A female, single pole AMP Superseal connector, on the end of a l-o-n-g bit of cable.

I followed it down with my hand and it seemed to disappear behind the steering rack.

Is this a disconnected brake-pad wear sensor from the NS front...?

Yes, that looks like the wiring connector for one of the brake pad wear sensors. If aftermarket pads have been fitted that have no pad wear sensor wire in, then that is the most likely reason why the connectors for the pad wear sensors have just been pulled back up into the engine bay and left dangling.

Thanks GE.

I think it must have been disconnected for years- as its in very good nick.

I wonder if there's one floating around on the opposite (OS) side. I'll have to find a place to store it properly...
