As I already do VW rewires I'm now considering selling wiring looms for VWs and I'm mainly concerned if someone tries to sue me because they've wired the thing up wrongly and set their car alight.
Obviously I'll be supplying full instructions but I can only go so far.

All the wires, switches, relays etc are off the shelf ISO rated so the looms really shouldn't need any further rating.

Other than filling everything with disclaimers, I really don't know what else to do.

I don't have the facilities to do "customer tech support" so it's gonna be tricky but I'd rather do this than people be forced to put up with dodgy wiring.

Any advice? :confused:

You need "products" liability (usually bought together with public liability) This is not however defective workmanship cover. You are covering yourself for injury or financial loss of a third party whilst using your product should it fail. Anything to do with cars / car parts is a big NO NO! with insurance companies. Although wiring is not "safety critical" like brakes you are going to struggle to get a reasonable quote.

How much do you charge for a re-wire in total?

Cheers!

Hmm... may have to rethink a few things.

If it's for a Bug and you can bring it up to mine in Blyth, Northumberland (about 14 miles north of Newcastle) you'd be looking at around £430 all in.
