Gill,

I am trying to Upgrade my climate control unit from a '99 S500 to my '95 S500 ...

I took the console out and found out that the Plugs on the '94 are different than the '99.

What can I do?

I like the way '96-'99 look.

Please Help.

I've read in this "forum" (page 2) that some did switch them and plugs were same, that's why I tried, but now confused.

New loom with plugs

Visit your dealer and order the correct loom. Like you ,I have also heard of other people swaping these units, so I know its possible.

Mike,

Be sure and let us know the outcome of your climate control conversion. I've been interested in updating my unit too.

Thanks,

I am afraid i dont have any pictures of the heating loom.
It's basically a bunch of wires grouped together with the correct sockets at each end that plus between your new control unit, the sensors and the fusebox.

For clarity, in North America, a loom is called a wireing harness.

English is a wonderfull language. I was reading an Australian thread, mentoning a "front aerodynamic facia", here we call it a spoiler.

Here is the part number on it;

210 830 05 85

and here are a few pics...

Thanks and Let me know,

The part number is correct. Its suitable for the W140 and was used in late C-classes and E-classes of that vintage.

You now need to visit the dealer for the loom(harness) for with the correct plugs - keep me updated with your progress
