So is "Wozz" going to replace the factory ones, or just put in a #2 set just for dashcam cables ?

looks like it will have to be a second set as no room for cable in factory one.

When I did my MINI Cooper, it had two boots going to the hatch. One was pretty much filled, and the other only had one wire.

different situation, my door connectors are molex plugs, no room for an extra cable, they are pretty much full.

Wozz might even have this to contend with in the front of his car.

LSx engines are just as bad, you have to pull the heads off to get to a noisy lifter to replace them.

The plasticky wire conduits one won't work, maybe slathered with RTV?
