You were right before. All models including the '92's were affected, as well as cars with 104 engines.

Wire Harness years of bad insulation

This is an old topic, and commented much upon in other threads. Although anything is possible, 92's are generally considered to be the last year with good insulation. If you were to find one with bad insulation it would be the exception rather than the rule.

This is also the opinion of my indi who has been in the busness for over 40 years.

I recently had a new head guasket installed on my 104 powered "92" CE. The harness was not replaced at that time because the insulation was in perfect condition, he showed it to me.

The bad insulation started in 93 and went thru to 96 or 97. Someone else can verify the end date because I'm not to sure on that.

Therefore I beleive the owner of this 92 500E that his harness is fine...

If you are willing to setup shipping we can arrange a price. I can store the car in my garage until it is picked up by the shippers. First offer gets the car. Email me at adeelali@hotmail.com
