Checked my 2014 today and its very snug and definately rubbing a bit. It did have loom and tape over it from the factory but I still added a section of additional loom and some zip ties just in case.

I discovered a slit worn in the protecting tape on my 2013 SE (with 5 speed) - 70,000 miles. I can't get a good view inside to see if the actual wires themselves are compromised. I guess i'll just add the loom and hope symptoms don't start.

I did a quick look under the hood and I am not sure where this loom goes. I looked at the picture and later on I looked under the hood and did not see the correct spot. Can someone post a farther back picture so I can get a better idea. Thanks. Is it on the right (driver) side looking at the engine?

The really thick tape in my 13 SE 5 speed hasn't worn at all, but I'll be doing the mod as a precaution.

Thanks wavsine, I remember seeing the square thing with the hole, I first saw it on the other side and looked around there. lol

** I did a temp. fix today. I need some bigger loom, I used what I had which I think was about 1/2 or 3/4 stretched out a bit. I used electrical tape on top to hold it. Thanks for pointing this problem out !

I added a metal 1/2" hose screw tie on this particular cable spot - metal works much better than any tape against cable chafing. This is a simple permanent fix.

Glad I saw this. My 14, built 11-13-14 doesn't have the loom. It's pretty tight but no wear yet. Something to take care of tomorrow after work I guess.

Thanks for posting this.

Silly question -- do you have to prompt your dealer to check for this, or is it part of their routine maintenance to cross-check if any bulletins are out on a vehicle they're servicing? My dealer just did an oil change on my car a few weeks ago -- would they have acknowledged this?
