Re: 1995 C280 Engine Wiring Harness

Can anyone shed some more light on the specific nature of the problem?
The insulation on the wiring harness degrades along the whole harness, but your instincts are right. I think it is the degradation along the top where it connects with the fuel injectors as this causes the driveability problems: misfiring, missing, backfiring, etc.
