W210 E55 Headlight Wiring Harness
I have a 2001 E55 with 57k on the clock. My passenger side xenon headlamp went out a couple of days ago. The daytime running light is also out (Canadian car). The Xenon lamp arcs upon startup but then dies.
Looked at the wiring harness for the headlamp assembly and its horribly cracked, with insulation completely missing in some places.
Anyone know of a way to repair this? I've seen 'wiring harness connector kits' on the eBay etc., but they appear to be for Halogen lights only.
Any part numbers and sources would be most greatly appreciated. Local dealer hasn't the foggiest what I'm talking about and replacing the entire assembly just because of a few cracked wires seems like overkill!
