sleeving used on the wire harnesses

I figured out the part numbers for the sleeving used on the wire harnesses.

040621-005200
-007200
-008200
-012200
-016200
-022200
-025200

The first 3 digits of the second half are the ID of the sleeve in mm.

The part numbers listed are all available and less than $2 per meter.

Out of interest, what are you going to use those sleeves for? A few of us are at present in process of rebuilding our D-Jet engine harnesses.

The main harnesses on my 72, have a fabric type of sleeve/covering in the engine bay and are just wrapped with tape under the dash. The leads to sensors and injectors have a black plastic (likely PVC) sleeve. These sleeves have become very stiff and brittle over time.

For my upgrade, I am using black silicone coated fibreglass for the smaller leads. This will stay flexible at high temperatures. The PVC would no doubt look more original, but we were looking for something better.

For the large harness bundles, it is possible to buy a product called woven wrap. This sleeve opens up and can be installed over existing harnesses. I plan on using that on some of existing harness bundles that I won't be disassembling along with high temperature amalgamating tape.

I will cross post your part number info to the harness thread on 107 forum.

Currently rebuilding wire harnesses in engine bay of my w116 6.9. Mine are likewise hard, cracked and brittle. I have a bunch of the different connector on the way from MB and just ordered the AMP 2 pin connectors and boots from 2-Pole Female AMP Jr Timer Kit

Of course as your know it is a lot of work as you need to disassemble the end connectors to slide the tube on, as well as replace hard and cracked wires. I'm still trying to find the different colored/striped wires, but am planning of getting some wire from my parts car also.

I plan on cutting the entire harness off near the firewall and going from there.

Too bad you already ordered those 2-pole connectors. Autohaus Arizona and others have them for lower prices.

For wires, mine will be scavenged off junk yard cars by Cush on 107 forum. He is also providing me with Jr Timer type plugs off Audis to replace the lesser quality original ones used on our D-Jets. We will install new terminals. The later plugs like you are using don't fit our injectors without major surgery.

It seems that there are sources of striped wires, but I haven't bought any yet. Digikey have a large selection. Might not get exact match though.

If your firewall grommet needs replacing, this aftermarket one from Germany is a lot cheaper than the original. It apparently is used on 107 and 116. OE equivalent is still available but costs about $100. http://www.sls-hh-shop.de/en/280-500...ji6l4?cnid=169
