If we are indeed talking about the lower harness (starter, oil etc), there is no way in hell it's 10 hours. I should have repaired mine when I had transmission out on SL500, but I was too concentrated on rebuilding that automatic box...

This would shine some light

To my best knowledge, there are 3 main harnesses that are affected (depending on the model of R129): Main upper, throttle body, lower starter harness. Few other pieces are (depending on the model again): MAF and electric cooling fans. Other affected pieces (usually, even later models) are headlight wires.

Hope this helps.
