Can I pull wire harness out

I have been having electrical probelms with my truck. I'm pretty sure I have some wires shorting somewhere in the rear wiring harness inside the frame rail. Is there anway to pull the entire harness out of the frame. Is the rear harness seperate from the main? I was hoping to be able to remove it and inspect the whole line. Tape it up and just leave it out of the rail...securing it to the frame.

As a side notE can you get just the harness running from the engine bay to the back lights new? I have a 97.
Thanks

Hi richard, yes you can pull the rear wiring through the chassis for inspection just remove the connectors from the lights & attach a cord to the wires the tape it up and pull it out from the from the cord is there so you can pull it back.

dont know about the 97MY NAS but all my 90's except my 85' had plugs on the bulkhead to separate the chassi loom from the main bulkhead loom.

regards

Gren

^^^ WHat he says, but when you pull the loom back in, bear in mind that there's lots of sharp sticky out things inside the chassis, so take you time when pulling it, and if it gets tight, then pull back a few inches then pull forward again.

Whenever i do it, the end that's getting pulled through (usually the rear light connections, as the front end has large plugs that won't fit through the chassis) i tape it all up into a "point", so there's no straggling odd cables.

And make sure you tape the pull cord on tightly, like over 2 feet or so of the loom, to eliminate the chance of the pull cord getting pulled of hald way down the chassis!

I had no prob going the other way. The nas harnesses have too many large plugs on the rear side.
