W123 US-->Euro headlight conversion

I'm working on converting my W123's headlights to euro, and am having difficulty locating the plastic 5-pole plug in EPC that would replace the 4-pole US-spec plug. Can anybody let me know the appropriate part number please?

Found on another forum from Google.

Unless your lights came with a Euro (six pin) to US (4 pin) adapter plug or harness, you will also need to get these from the dealer:

qty (2) - 006 545 80 28 - six-pin electrical connector, socket
qty (2) - 009 545 30 28 - six-pin electrical connector, cover

These parts replace the 4 pin US plug on each side with a six pin plug, however the actual wire and pins from the US plug are re-used by repositioning them in the six pin electrical connector.

To wire the City Lights to the front driving lights:
Low wattage soldering iron & solder
Wire stripper and cutter
Approx. 24 inches of 12-16 gauge stranded automotive wire
qty (2) - 003 545 26 26 - pin, connector
qty (2) snap type wire splices

Thanks! I put together an order for all the correct screws and such for the headlights, and with those parts added in it's like $60 for everything. More than I was anticipating but I don't want to repeat the hackjob that was on the car I got the lights from.

You could use the tail light plugs (6 holes) if you wanted to go that route.

Ahh, that would probably work if I had any spares. But new ones are inexpensive enough. The most expensive part are the 4 bolts for the side of the headlights near the grille, over $5 each.
