    I didn't realise for about 15 mins as it never broke the speed limit.

        Fknlol Marco best write up ever!

        Briney, yeah looks like they may work. They are coil on plug but I recon I could just put leads and caps on them.

          Taillights work better when they have an earth wire. Who knew?

            Ok, Iím not confident I can get a wiring diagram for the 4.3. I have one for the V6 but thereís some differences in how they pin out at the ecu. The diagram I have doesnít 100% match the engine plugs. Anyone have access to mb diagrams??
            Iíve bought manuals on CD/PDF and none cover the v8. Local MB place wants to charge me $120 to look at their shop manual and Iím considering it. MB forums and Facebook have given responses ranging from general confusion to open hostility so no help there.

            Iím prepared to wing it but would rather not. Anyone? Bueller?

              I have the MB WIS (Workshop Information System) which has test procedures for every conceivable part in the car..
              I entered a VIN from a '99 ML430 I found for sale and the only wiring diagrams shown are for the alternator and the starter...

              I'm thinking the techs who use this just work through all the diagnostics for each related component until they get to the step that says 'replace the wiring harness' and don't actually do any fault finding of the wiring systems, and therefore don't need the drawings..

              ??

                  Yeah, Mercedes was abit funny in regards to that sort of thing. You have to remember this was during the whole "green" movement in Germany so manufacturers adopted the theory that the car would be recycled before it requires that sort of repair. Warranty repairs to the wiring would involve a full replacement.

                      Nope! Probably 2 hours of work (3 weeks in real time now due to work travel etc). I need to finish one bit of welding, skim with bog and primer, refit the fuel tank then good to go.

                      Had a really good lunch break today. Got some welding done until I ran out of wire, so I got the tail light wiring sorted. Everything works now!

                        It concerns me that you managed to achieve more on your own in a lunch break than three of us did in an afternoon.

                        Note I say concerned, not surprised
