Accident damaged vehicle unknown wire under wheel arch

During the process of repairing my Lexus IS 220D SE, I noticed a wire grouping (under the passenger side wheel arch just above the washer bottle pump) which has been ripped out. I am unclear on what these wires are actually for. I wondered if it was spare wires which were intended for parking sensors that are not fitted to this model or for the head light washers.I can't locate a wiring diagram anywhere.

Would anyone be able to help me on this, please.

I have a1994 Lexus gs 300. My quarter panel was hit and now my. Rear wheel is wearing out on the inside. What happened?

Well, if you were in an accident on the rear quarter panel, I might think that the wheel could have gotten hit as well causing it to be out of alignment. If your vehicle was repaired after the accident, I would return it to the shop and let them know that you are having issues with the tire wear and see if they can submit a supplemental to the insurance company to cover any part replacement, labor, and tire replacement. If your vehicle was not repaired after the accident I think I would take it to an alignment shop before the tire is completely worn out.

I have a rover75classic 54 it is leaking water when it rains on near side is it a useual fault

Had same problem. Lift up rear seat on drivers side and you will see a steel tube running from the wheel arch under the seat. Tube is about 2 inches wide. If this is rusted underneath then water is getting via the wheel arch open end of the tube. It runs into the rear foot well and forward into drivers footwell, also runs under rear seats and into the boot! I removed the rear drivers side wheel, pulled away the plastic wheel arch lining then sealed the hole where the wiring leads through this pipe. Covered it with plastic flashing replaced the wheel arch lining. Took 30 mins to repair, took a week to dry the carpet, rear seats and boot carpet.

Does anyone have any step by step guides that show how to remove the offside front wheel arch liner on a Mercedes SLK 320 to gain access to the windscreen washer reservoir? It's leaking from somewhere and...

It does go under the foot well with i think another bolt but i think this one is steal as the others are plastic so will probably be rusty after removing the arch there should be enough room to remove the bottle especially if the wheels been removed

My 1997 Toyota Rav 4 is driving more and more "bumpy" and it sometimes feels like the wheel is going to come off or like I have a flat tire. This car has been in an accident and it was fixed;...

this is sounding very dangerous,it will need to be checked very soon ,i would suspect the lower front suspension arm may need replacing on the damaged side,and maybe even the top arms too ,its very difficult to know without seeing it underneath ,i sell these parts for a firm in my country and these are the usual faults in these fine vehicles,i would also suggest you get a wheel alignment done by a tyre company and they will advise you what is wrong from that as they will be adjusting everything under there to achieve their desired result ,please have this sorted quickly as you may crash if something comes loose under your RAV 4 ,this can be very serious if its left to itself ,you will lose control of your vehicle if it happens so get it sorted ASAP
THANK YOU for using FixYa

please check that during the process of the cleaning the wires to the wheel sensors was remvoed by accident. Look under the car with a good light on the underside of the wheel drums.

Can a damaged CV joint damage the transmission?

It can if it tears in half. It can tear alot of things apart along with brake lines, abs wiring. It's best to fix the problem asap before anything like this happens.
