Rear fog light wire colour


This is my forst post to the forum.

I bought Ml270cdi from uk and exported the car to Finland. Our law says that you have to have rear fog light on left side and in uk it's right side.

The question is what colour is the for the wire, that I can reverse the side?

Bulb holder is there and the everything else as well, just need the colour of the wire.

Thanks allready in advance.

Most likely the wire is missing. That is what happens in Australia / UK. The live wire is missing from one side (except SLK R171). Probably you need to move one wire to alternate side. Any multimeter can tell you in 5 minutes of testing.

You need to change the headlights to left hand drive focusing as well.
Changing the rear fog light side may be as simple as a version code change in the AAM computer. What year ML do you have. If I have the wiring diagrams for that year I will check for you.
