What are these?

Post by garym999 » Fri Jun 14, 2019 1:07 pm

Just swapped from an SMax to a new Kodiaq rummaging around I found these poking out around the spare wheel tool box and wondered what they were? At first I thought they were pull cords for the boot or fuel flap but they are not mentioned in the manual. On second thoughts they look like antennas of some kind and run along the floor of the boot and then pop out by the tool box

Someone also found these a while ago, and we never got an answer as to what they are for.

Interesting, I do have two bar prep with an after market towbar. They consist of wire wrapped around different coloured string. They terminate in two foil strips either side of a foam pad. What’s weird is that the wires appear uninsulated an lay of the boot floor held in place with paper stickers surley you would not rely on the paint in the boot for insulation. In my case there is no obvious relationship to the two bar prep, which BTW is just the required cables and plugs and does not include any coding

Collect my car yesterday and the sames wires just dangli g in the boot. It would be good to know what they are, I'll hide them away.

Also had a towbar so maybe linked to the wiring.

If it helps, these wires are not visible on my Yogi. I do not have a tow bar fitted.

They are moisture probes, used during the cars production, storage and transportation prior to delivery.

Tuck them away and forget about them, they're no longer needed.

So should they have been removed/tucked away as part of the Pre Delivery Inspection?

Yes, but they rarely are, causing lots of concern / confusion.

moisture Probes, now I’m even more intrigued.

So are you saying these are already disconnected. What were they used for?
