Hi, I', back trying to find xrtra parts 4 my 83 500 sec

Hey found you...
So happy as this place is great
Hope everyone & their benzes are well

Snatcheda a tail light
can;t renember yr]
what yrs are interchangeable?

Also is it good to buy old relays?
I got a ovr #1265404745 overload that I hope fits the 500 83 sec
don't even know if it works but mine is a aftermarket & its always a good spare I guess

What parts are good to have spares as they r not made anymore

I tthink my tailigfhts are from a 90
noticed the red corners are painted red n in a 90 they are all yellow
My passenger side lens has to small light cracks so I was looking for tailights n noticed that my corners are painted red over yellow.
Was yellow the euro version or maybe someone switched the tailights?

so don't know why but it is a euro n msybe they ca,me that way
ho can you read tailights to date them? Mine have no dates only a code # which I think is the same as the 90 lense
they don't seem to have dates..

Anyway having some frustrating fun fixing my Volvo tailight that someone cracked & those plastic repairs kits don't work.

Any hints on an adhesive / glue to glue a patch onto a broken lens?

trouble w euro secs

light doesn't fit
the tail light in the sec is shorter & outside bulb holder is on the bottom not in the middle as the one I got which I think came off of a 84 sel

also the wiring is strange as they played with the end light to make it fit on the board n it has a smaller bulb with the glass bottom not the regular
10w/6cp thats in the manual


also the outside light is not working on the passanger side
they have it screwwd into the plastic hole & have a red wire which came off that was either wrapped around think its 6 prong anyway the bottom right prong or maybe on the screw as a ground?

Also the passenger side plug has one less pin than the stock light
which to confuse matters as the drivers side plug has 7 prongs oh & lucky has that last bulb that is not in the manual

oh & drivers side tail has a plug on top going into the pronged socket
where as the passenger side is missing this plug n wire so don't know if thats a problem that needs repair as I can't get the small tail light bulb to work...???


think Im going crazy
