The following is the pin out for the 6 pin connector on the V8 euro lights. It
was posted by Shawn Head a while ago.
"The connectors are available from Mercedes. While they are not as
waterproof as the original audi connectors they do work.
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
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 taillamp harnesses out of a 190E Mercedes
Benz.they come with the wires already soldered to the pins and the
plastic plugs that fit perfectly to the euro lamp!!!
Now the hook up.
there are numbers on the back of the lamp next to the pin it locates .
56b LOWBEAM POSITIVE TOP LEFT PIN
56a HIGHBEAM POSITIVE TOP RIGHT PIN
57 SIDEMARKER LIGHT MIDDLE LEFT PIN
58 INDICATER LIGHT IN HEADLAMP MIDDLE RIGHT PIN
Wire 57 & 58 TOGETHER
31 GROUND LOWER LEFT PIN
31 GROUND LOWER RIGHT PIN
wire 31 & 31 TOGETHER"
and Scott by Boston has photos of the V8 lighting schematic up on his site.
For the euro lights I picked up, I haven't installed them yet, I got the V8
specific connectors from the seller in Germany. It didn't seem as if they
were to difficult to source there.
