Does your c5 have a partial loom already on it ?

Nope. It has NO wires whatsoever.

Andy - if possible could you either email minimin some piccies or post them here ?
Piccies speak a thousand words so it might be the easiest answer.

I found this two pictures of the control box wires, hope they help a little, if you have a complete wiring loom, then some of the wires have no connectors on the ends, these are only used for indicators etc, if your c5 does'nt have indicators etc then a lot of the wires are just neatly cable tied away, but the rest should be easy to work out, like the lights, the power switch, pod and motor.

Also have a look at my restoration picture's (type in to the search bar:- Andy's Project) you may find some of these pictures useful, feel free to drop me a message with your phone number and i will call you and explain where the wires go a bit better.

If you mean once the light unit is removed, you cant seperate the rear lense from the grey bulb holder back part, the light is one moulded unit.
