Hello and thank you for your question

 

What age is the car?

Are the wheels standard ?

is the suspension standard?

 

When you wiggle the connection you must have a fault/break in the wire does it look possible to put a new section of wire in their.. as it looks like you have almost found the exact fault yourself without any diagnosis.

 

If you could provide the additional information that would be great,

 

Many Thanks

 

Dan

The car was bought on 02-04-08
As far as I'm aware these wheel and alloys are a feature on the 'Design Twin Top model
No modifications have been made
The low profiles are not the most comfertable ride though look good but the issue is I've replaced my tyres 5 times since ownership as low profiles are not ideal ( high kerbs. Pot holes And bumps )
