Ok, thanks.You need to change the four pronged plugs to the six pronged plugs.
Part # 011 545 50 28
They snap open easily. The plugs are available at the dealer for a $2 $3 each or look on eBay for "Mercedes european headlight plugs" (not my listing). Also parts.com. If you can get to a salvage yard, W123 - W124 and W201 use the plugs on the tail lights.
Here is a wire diagram.
Yes. Bosch, Hella and Depot European headlights all have the same plug configuration.Ok, thanks.
Just to be clarify the depo lights have 5 pronged and the original had 4 pronged. So will the 6 pronged plugs work with the depo 5 pronged lights.
You need 2 plugs but no other parts needed from the dealer.If so than i can just get the Part # 011 545 50 28 from local Mercedes local dealer and I'm good or there a another part # for the 5 pronged? thanks
I did ordered the 6 pin connector. You mentioned you just spliced the wire (#4 wire) from the turn signal; instead of connecting the jumper wire inside connector, making a three way connection...one going to the turn signal light and other to the headlamps, correct?You may either want to splice a new line from the park light wire from the turn signal to the city light slot in the 6-pin connector, or simple disconnect the said wire from the turn signal light and wire it into the city light slot instead. In my case I just spliced another wire in order not to butcher the original wiring insulation. I placed electrical tape into one of the dual contacts of the turn signal bulb, because one of them is for the side marker. If I didn't do that, the side marker would be on together with the city lights. I prefer the city lights by themselves.
I mentioned two options: splice a new (jumper) wire from the park light to the city light or grab the original park light and reposition into the city light slot.I did ordered the 6 pin connector.

You'll just have to test which of the two contacts to tape, I don't recall which one but this is a very easy step. If you grab the original wire for the park lights and transfer this to the city light, then there's no need to tape the other contact.And which dual contacts did you place the electrical tape over so the side marker would not turn on with city lights?
