WICK LOWDOWN ON CAR BLAGUES
Given the volume of chat on the probability of a car break-in in Wicklow, it is clear I must be the only man in Ireland who didn’t know this. Culchie fool. Which explains why I got screwed a couple of weeks ago. If I describe the MO perhaps some car techie can come up with some prophylactic. I have my own solution and it involves a few boys from up here in the north who are now at a loose end after the troubles. Anyhoo – the perps are using an effective technique to get into vehicles – not all vehicles though, including my own, so it is indiscriminate.
The trick is to cut through the cable assembly running from under the driver’s side wheel arch into the driver’s door. They do this by inserting I guess a long hacksaw blade or serrated knife between the driver’s side front body panel and the driver’s door. Result sometimes to pop the driver’s door. Result for the owner, the task of reconnecting about 30 severed cables or taking out a bank loan for an auto electrician to replace the cable assembly whole. The objective seems not to steal the car but only any cash or valuables inside – ie cutting through this little lot could disable the car.
If someone can suggest a flexible material which would be resistant to this attack and can be wrapped around the assembly when the driver’s door is open, it could be the answer to moving these boys on. If not, we can go back to Plan A above.
