    All of the Caymans are equipped with heated windshield washer nozzles and are heating anytime the ignition is turned on.

    Ah! I feel silly. My brain was locked into the headlight washers and not the windshield washers. Awesome! Does anyone have pictures & a description of where to find those wires under the frunk?

    Hello GatorPhD,

    After removing the battery access panel look for the windshield washer nozzles. The wires you are looking for go directly to the nozzles.

    You'll need to establish the hot (+) from the ground (-) because unlike incandescent bulbs, LEDs are polarity specific. A simple 12-volt test light will do the job if you don't have a meter.

    Best regards,

    Joe

    Can you blow the LEDs if you get + and - mixed up?

    I will be posting photos of the DRL wiring as soon as I get the spars. However if you can't wait, there are two wires to the washer heaters: black with brown stripe, black with orange stripe. The orange one is +ve, the brown -ve.

    Hello AJK,

    Good question! They won't be damaged, they just won't light until you reverse the connection.

    Best regards,

    Re: Cayman LED Spars with Radiator Guards (fits 2006-2008) Group Buy

    I pre-ran the wiring today in anticipation of these LED's which I don't have yet haha. I went a little overboard though. I took off the bumper and ran wiring from the left side to the right side where I merged the wires. The remaining single (+ and -) wires were run through the gasket on the front wall of the front tub into the trunk and along the inside of the right side of the tub. I then ran them through the rear tub wall gasket into the battery tray area and tapped them into the right side windshield washer squirter with an inline fuse on the positive wire just for some extra protection.

    Rsg: I admire your excess... Since I have also pre-wired my DRLs, I award you the Oscar for going totally over the top! Since the heater circuit is already fused, another fuse seems a little unnecessary, and I am able to deliver the power wires to the spars without removing the bumper. And they sit nicely under the plastic that surrounds the frunk and don't run through it. I'm interested to see photos of your layout! Just proves there are many ways to skin the proverbial cat.

    Here on Planet-9, I have an interest survey for the 2009-2012 Cayman LED Spars with Radiator Guards (see:http://www.planet-9.com/cayman-boxst...st-survey.html ) however it hash't received much traffic.

    Please post your vote there and if enough interest is present I'll be happy to develop them for the 2009-2012 Cayman.

    Thank you for your interest!

    Joe
    Thanks Joe, I have registered, pls keep me posted if this is a go... Thanks again for the reply.

    I will definitely post pictures of how I did it when I get the spars ready for installation. The only reason I chose an inline fuse is because the wire was already there from my previous Philips LED drl installation so I just cut it and used it for my pre-wire on this project. I spent 1.5 hours doing it, but it was therapeutic to be able to take the car cover off and do some work on her while she is still in storage.

    I have also cut the connectors off the city lights to attach to the wires I ran for the led spars so that if I ever need to take the bumper off I can disconnect the spars from the connector so I am not stuck in a hard wired situation having to cut or remove the wires should the situation arise.

    rsg: can you confirm my observation in post 366 above, that the polarity of the heater wires is black/orange (+), black/brown (-)?

    Dropped my car off at Green Motorsport for the install. I know it's a simple DIY'er but I don't have any time this week to do it and I really did not want to wait another week to install them. Anyway here are some pics. They told me they finished in 15 minutes and very simple to do
