Yeah, wire harnesses have always been a serviced item. Just like tires, wires wear out and need replacing.
As to a big expense for replacement, a dollar is too much for something that should last virtually forever. I will admit that having the A/C evaporator replaced by a dealer will cost several times what a harness replacement will cost. Both faults are inexcusable for a Mercedes.

The Mercedes Benz 1991-1996 Engine Wiring Harness Defect website has a new home, and will be updated in due course.

I will note, I have seen a large number of reported fires among the new consumer complaints. In addition, there are a large number of 1996 harness failures now being reported. As well, there are now a number of 1997 wiring harness failures on record at the NHTSA...

Filed a complaint with the NHTSA, 1995 C220, called MBUSA, and they politely gave me a big, hairy, four knuckled middle finger and told me to bend over and spread 'em.
