    I've just had the windscreen replaced on my 2001 CLK 430 convertible, and the fitter managed to break the connector in half on the cable. I've got the replacement connector, and just want to check the wiring for the connector, i.e. which colour wire connects to what crimp socket?

    Hi,
    I have just looked at the wiring diagram i have, you should have 3 cables going to the plug a black, a brown and a pink.
    The connector slots should be marked 1 to 3.
    3 is in the middle and 1 and 2 on the outside.
    Black cable to 1
    Pink cable to 3 (middle).
    Brown cable to 2
    Hope this helps.

    Thanks - that's exactly what I wanted to know. I just didn't want to blow up the sensor :) ! I presume the pink wire is the sensor data the other two 12V & ground.

    Hi,
    Sorry i have misread the diagram, it appears that it is a 4 pin connector, in my diagram it is laid out in a way that the connectors don,t run in order, your new connector pin slots are laid out in order 1-4 and not as i previously stated.
    PIN/Cable colour locations are as previious post.
