The wiring harness in the trunk is fried. I dont know where to purchase a new one.

Mechanic's Assistant: What is the model/year of your Mercedes?

2000 c280

Mechanic's Assistant: Are you fixing your C280 yourself? What have you tried so far?

I was hoping to find the name of the part to purchase so a mechanic could do the work for me.

Hello my name is ***** ***** welcome to just answers! I will be assisting you with all of your vehicle questions today. Give me one moment while I review your question and come back with a answer. Please be aware I do not know your skill level or abilities so I will be asking a lot of questions and in a lot of cases we will respond to each other quite a lot before we find a solution. As far as phone calls are concerned that is a system automated prompt , not me, and they do cost more money, I prefer text but in some cases a phone call is required. If I don’t answer right away or quickly in conversation I am helping another customer or have stepped out for a moment and will respond as soon as I can. Ok lets get started!

Have you tried calling the dealer yet?
