More fun this weekend.

First off let me give a big ol FU to the genius that decided to use biodegradable wiring insulation.

This weekend I had the joy of rewiring both MAF harnesses and the passenger side ETA. The main injector harness and drivers ETA had been replaced before I purchased the car.

I split the passenger side harness and found that the only wires that were cracking were the MAF wires, same was found on the drivers side. The wires were cracking all the way to the connectors in the computer box. So instead of pulling the harness and wires I just ran new wires from the MAF to the connector in the computer box. For the ETA I just split the connector and ran new wiring like everyone else does.

A million and one thank you's to restoreyourmercedes and GUS on here for all the vids and pics.

Now I have no more check engine or ASR lights on.

I still have a slight hesitation at hard acceleration so the diag and repairs continue.

Pics of my mess.

Passenger MAF wires.


More pass MAF wires.


Split MAF connector and wires. No pic of new wires.


New wires ran to connector. Soldiered new wires to the last 2 inches of the existing wire then shrink wrapped the old wire and soldier connection.


Original ETA wiring and connector.


Original ETA wiring to circuit board and motor.


New wiring to ETA motor and circuit board.


I had previously pulled the trunk seal and found some slight rust developing on the back edge of the trunk so I cleaned the rust and applied some POR15 to stop the rust.



Front edge of the trunk, squeaky clean and perfect.
