Alternator wiring replacement.

Hi All
I have checked the charging system on my 280se I6.
The battery was not getting charged. So i took the alternator in for a rebuild. new brushes, bearings etc. i also ordered a new voltage regulator while i was there.
i just noticed tonight the small wiring harness that goes from the regulator to the alternator is in poor shape. One of the wires is badly corroded.
i figure this was the root of the problem. anyway does anyone know were i can get a new harness. its the one which has a rectangular plug connector both ends.
All the best John.

Hi John,
NoT entirely sure if you can find a harness for that part, hopefully someone can chime in on that soon..m

But in the mean time (depending on you skill level) could’nt you cut and reconnect the badly damaged wire with a new piece?
If tge connectors are how i imagine you can pop them open to solder a new piece onto the plug ends or brreak out the old crimping tool.

Good luck

I was thinking exactly that. It looks pretty simple. If i can open up those connectors it should be easy to solder a new wire on.
Thanks for your response.
All the best John.
