This is great!  Local MB dealer quoted under $3.00 each, and said the 6-pin
is pretty common.  It's used on headlights as well, older C- and S class in
addition to the 190E, and even Gelandewagen.  He didn't show a boot,
though-- does the block seal at the back?

older 190E class tail lamp plug. They are plastic instead of bakelite, 
but work fine. Any of the older Mercedes use the same 'style' plug for 
the tail lamp - they won't fit (8 pin or 6 pin with ) but the female 
pins are the same. I go to the junkyard and grab them, then buy the E 
class plug from the dealer. Reason? The pins from the Merc dealer are 
like 4.00 bucks each, and the plug is like 6.00. That's 30.00 per side!
FYI - the Audi pn for the plug is supposed to be 441 972 966 - but you 
can't find them in the US...

Here's the original post - prices are out of date. The Merc dealer 
usually stocks 1. Takes 4-5 days to get the part in:

Ok sorry I havent get back to the posts on the Euro lights I have the info
where to get
the plugs and the pins. Enough talk.
The plugs are available through mercedes benz parts
Part # 011-545-50-28        you will need 2 of these at 2.55 each .
The pins are available at MB parts also
Part # 003-545-26-26       you will need 12 of these at 2.55
each .

these are a solder type plug so you will need wire and solder and a
soldering gun
and flux
to do this or you can go to a salvage yard and get the left and the right

harnesses out of a 190E Mercedes Benz.they come with the wires already
solderd to
the pins
and the plastic plugsthat fit perfectly to the euro lamp!!!
