Good evening, I hope you are doing great. My name is***** would be happy to assist you with this.

Do the bulbs have the wires hardwired to them or are they connected with a locking connector on the bulbs? Sometimes when you get these from the salvage yard they will just chop the harness and leave them connected to the bulbs. You can just unplug them and then hook up the connectors that are currently on your vehicle

They appear to be the A 164 826 00 07 repair kit. I don't know which wires should plug into the connectors.
Mercedes Mechanic: Gabriel Grey, Auto Service Technician replied 4 months ago

Alright, I am unfamiliar with that kit, so I am going to open this to a new expert, please standby a moment
