Headlamp wiring was created by Michael R
I´m just going through the wiring of 1704 and the headlight wiring has to be replaced. There is a connector on the inner side of the lamp housing. If I pull the cable, it seems to be spring loaded and I don´t want to destroy something. Do I have to turn the whole thing? just the inner plate? clockwise? counterclockwise?
with lightless regards
Michael

I think you have to bend a metal tab to remove the wiring connector. I will have a look at my car tomorrow as the front sheet metal is still on shelves waiting to be reassembled.

Hello again Michael. I had a look at my wiring harnesses today and noted that the ends of the cables all have male bullet fittings. I could not find the plastic or rubber grommets that fit in the headlight bucket as seen in your picture but I removed them around 4 years ago and still have them .............. somewhere.
I do remember that they just popped out. Sorry I can't be more specific. You will have to clean up the area to see how the cables just pull out.
