Wiring Loom behind front grill

Post by Dr P » Thu Feb 07, 2019 10:32 am

Hi All. I hope this is in the right area. Please excuse if Not. Two years in to ownership and I decided to investigate taking the badges off and possibly fitting black or carbon front rings. The small RS6 badge was simple to remove with a bit of help here, the rings are a work in progress as the appear to be clipped in on a once only design and it looks like something will break if I try to detach them. I removed the black tray that sits above the radiators and found a dangling item! Can anyone identify the component in the pictures please? It is on a short length of the loom that sits behind the front grill in front of the rad. It is in a small loom that is fixed centrally on the front crash bar in line with the front camera. It is on what appears to be a broken plastic bracket. The loom is just long enough to allow the broken bracket and plug to be lifted up to photograph. I have had a look around and cannot find anything that it looks like it would reach or evidence of where the bracket snapped off although it is tricky getting a decent view between the grill and the rad. 2015 RS6 C7 I have added a picture of my grill and surrounds in case that helps?
