Meh, that happens with those connectors sometimes.
It will get fixed, probably next time they do an electrical inspection and test, or when someone notices.

There is no particularly major danger here, and if I saw it I would probably just loosen the gland, stuff the cable in an inch or two and tighten the gland, then give it a quick test.

This place does sometimes like to sweat the trivialities, and even a German plant needs maintenance because things do break (And even there, not always on a predictable schedule).

Regards, Dan.

Lord of nothing, You have not been in Norway?

604m straight line down.




The authorities have opted not to install fencing or other safety devices as they felt it would detract from the natural beauty of the site and the fact that fatalities at the site are extremely rare, despite having approximately 200,000 visitors each year.[6] Furthermore, there were concerns that fences or other devices might encourage dangerous behavior such as climbing onto the fences. It should also be noted that it is a policy from Norwegian authorities that "we cannot fence in all nature in this country", and this is supported by the Norwegian population who are generally more accustomed to "dangerous nature" of their country than foreign tourists.

Why dont you whine about the crappy cooling system in BMW engines all made of plastic?
Or that every single engnie family as stupid failures, from timing chains, to crap turbos, to intake butterflies that break, to timing chains, to heads that crack?
And you get that on a "german engineering" "premium" brand, german engineering is the best marketing campaign in this century, they are a huge pile of crappy plastic made be Renault, with botched together engines designed by people on drugs due to all the dumb decisions that you can see when you get a wrench and work on the car, air filter and oil change,  no problem, just remove 30kg of plastics and anti-roll bars and what not.  |O

Santana and Jetta are still very reliable, probably more reliable than any other cars. In China, taxis are almost all Santana and Jetta until 2010s (which Korean cars, Hyundai, Kia, have taken over for the low initial investment cost and still acceptable maintenance cost).
Still many taxi companies in China purchase large quantities of Santana and Jetta cars albeit the doubled initial cost compared with cheap Korean cars.
They rarely break, and when they do break, every car shop in China can fix them. Kinda like Honda in the US.

My car is a Mk4 Jetta, but its a pretty old design of tdi engine, and its a 15 year car, but the common rail engines and engines would break heads like no tomorrow, DPF filters that clog, and destroy your turbo and valves, warped blocks, half the problem is emissions control systems..  None the less BMW is pretty expensive for crap parts all around..

Even better is Jaguars costing 6 figures made on BMW, VW and Ford platforms and then covered in leather with hot glue and staples lul.
