Title: Wire harness mounting construction

Abstract: Band bodies (31) of bendable harness fastening and fixing bands (30) are formed integrally on the vicinity of an outer surface of a duct partition wall (22a) of an air duct (21) on an instrument panel (20) of a vehicle body. First band retaining rings (24) are formed respectively on those portions of the instrument panel (20) corresponding respectively to the band bodies (31), and second band retaining rings (25) are formed on the outer surface of the air duct partition wall (22a). A series of catching notches (32), arranged in a one-way notched arresting manner, are formed on a reverse surface of the band body (31), and each of the first and second band retaining rings (24) and (25) have a lock portion for engagement with the catching notches (32) to prevent the backward movement of the band body. Any one of several kinds of wire harnesses (40) to (42) of different diameter can be fixed by the use of the first band retaining rings (24). Also, a wire harness (50) in the form of a flat cable of a flattened cross-section can be fixed by the use of the second band retaining rings (25).
