    For you DIY-Home Gamers (like me), who don't have access to Wurth or similar automotive specialty suppliers or wholesale electrical suppliers, you can find 3M friction tape at your nearest big orange box (HD).
    Part number: 3407NA-BA-6 It's $2.97 per roll of 3/4" wide.

    (friction tape is that nice cotton wrap anti-abrasion tape).

    Yes, last week have repaired Skoda Fabia 1,2l 3-cyl gas. One wire for fuel injector was completely cut and some 7-8 another wires partially damaged in the same place.

    MY 2000 is Passat B5 - different wiring layout, different materials used, mainly wires wrapped with tape, including looms fitted in corrugated tubes.
