Lightbulb Here it goes...

In my 1991 420SEL I re-wired the light harness as follows...

Old pin#--------Wire color----------New pin#

2----------------brown (2)---------------2

To wire the city lights, run a wire from #3 pin, in the main (5 pin) harness to the the #4 pin in the side marker harness (a 4 pin harness). Go to your local MB dealer and buy part #003-545-26-26. This is the pin that you will run from #3 in the main harness.

Good luck and have fun.
