    I alwasy want the expert to be an expert.
    It's their expertise I'm interested in and I SO want them to tell me something beneficial to me and my particular problem - especially when I'm stuck :confused:

    Check out the pertinent bits in RED below from a pay as you go expert mechanic website ............

    Hello,​
    1 connector goes to the 1st injector,
    2- to boost pressure
    3- to commonrail pressure sensor.
    4- goes to fusebox.
    Good Mercedes mechanic will know exactly which plug goes to which sensor if something is unclear. It is almost impossible to mix the plugs up. The plugs are come in between the element and wiring harness.
    Best Regards,
    Stan
