Re: Best way to split a wire? (converted_vw)

sure, this is what I do when I do a simple connection, but when spliting the wire so that it can go in two direction (left and right headlight) what's the best to do????

Re: Best way to split a wire? (QcGTI)

That's how I do it, or use the self vulcanizing electrical tape (expensive small roll from radio shack).
I use 2 pieces of wire, one connection.
A long piece for the "split" and the wire for the relay. On the long wire, at the middle or so, remove the insulation with a cigarette lighter and your fingers (wear gloves if you need to). Solder the relay wire to it...and wrap using the tape and/or tubing.
That's my suggestion...which may be the totally opposite route others may think of, or the one you'll end up doing.

Re: Best way to split a wire? (neimis)

I've always used an appropriately sized spade connector to be able to split both wires right at the relay. Always seemed cleaner or neater than trying to split it downstream somewhere.
