I've been looking at the electrical connector on the N/S bulkhead in the engine bay of my Disco1 and they have no cover on at all.

Are they supposed to be covered or where they built like this?

Has anyone designed a waterproof enclosure for them? If so have you got any pics?
 
I think you are talking about the Headlight Dim-Dip Resister (UK Models Only) - I've never seen a cover fitted, I think they are supplied from new like this.

No there is a bank of approx 12 cube shaped connector blocks in the engine bay on the bulkhead next to the nearside inner wing. each connector has 4 or 5 wires entering and leaving. I assume that If I do any deep wading that these will get soaked. and short out. has anyone found a way to seal them?
 
I think you are describing the aux fuse box. It carries the high current fuses, and should have a top cover. Get one from LR.

No not fuses just connector blocks they look a bit vunerable to water problems if you go wading. It looks like the main wiring harness all comes together on the N/S front bulkhead
 
Can you post a picture?

The fuses in the aux panel are not like the fuses elseware. They are fuseable links and look like lego blocks. Without looking at mine, I can remember one being a darkish pink.

Better posting a picture if you can.

A picture is like a thousand words. Theya are striaghtforward loom connectors. They are designed to get wet, so I would leave them well alone. Boxing them in is likely to seal in any water. Covering them in some proprietry spray will be ok until you need to disconnect one. Thereafter they will probably lose their ability to withstand water.

I think you get my drift. Leave them alone.
