Electrical connectors 1st gen vs 2nd gen vs 3rd gen

Did they change the connectors between generations?

NOT quite sure HOW to answer.... SOME connectors are different (Gen 1 to Gen 3), but MOST that do the same thing, are similar (the same). One BIG difference (Gen 1 to Gen 3) is that the wires are JUST BARELY long enough, so it becomes VERY difficult to attach two ends together. What I've done is to remove 'plastic covers' on my '15, as in this pic.



HOPE this helps.

Thanks Eddie,

It looks like it's a lot more space in the back under the seat... compared with gen 1.
I'm looking to transfer my BackOFF and I didn't splice the wire, I bought connectors.
Same with the turning signal.

I'm NOT sure I'd say there's more (or even the SAME space under the seat) as Gen 1s, BUT it's MUCH easier to get at the computor in the Gen 3s, among other things.
