    is it easy to wire a scart cable? reason i ask is, i want to get one down my LMP mount, cable will go, but not the connector, so one end would have to be wired in after dropping it down the shaft!

    anyone in notts fancy earning a few quid wiring it for me after ;O)

    cheers

    It’s just the bulky housing that needs to be removed not the wires or connectors, so it’s easy.

    Depends on the type of connector. If present, unscrew the cable strain relief (round nut). Prise the plastic body apart with a flat screw driver. Remove the metal shroud. From the pin side, grip each pin and push though the body of the plug using long nosed pliers. Depending on the cable you will then have up to 21 wires hanging free. Note the pin locations before starting. Good luck.
