Default Wiring in front reinforment

I recently installed PTeazer front grille. As per instruction, remove the original stock reinforcement and replace with PTeazer reinforcement.

However, i've realized after removing the original reinforcement, there is a bunch of wiring which previously hidden behind protected by the original reinforcement, is now exposed. I only use cable tie to tie them with PTeazer reinforcement.

The bunch of wiring is now exposed with the airy PTeazer grille. During car wash and heavy rain, water/rain will splashed through the grille and in contact with the wiring.

Do we need to somehow cover it? Or is it alright for those wires to be exposed with water?

Anyone knows where does the wiring connected to?

You could buy some convuluted tubing(slit down the center) and insert the wiring bundle inside the tubing and tie it with ziper wraps to the new support.

I would just make sure it is secure and not chaffing anything. Also it is never a bad idea to seprate the connectors and put some dielectric grease on them and reconnect them back together.

I just changed my transmission fluid and I yanked the battery and bettery tray out and did that to the connectors on the transmission, speed sensors, fan connector etc.
