Our C220 Cdi '02, came into contact with a Fox (not the Polo type), and as a result ripped out the fog lamp, with part of the loom.

The plug now that remains is up near the washer bottle, the bit of loom I need is between this 2 pin plug, and the plug for the fog lamp HB4 socket.

I can not find a part number any where, can anyone help?
Cheers :)

To be honest it will be cheaper and easier to do a fix by chopping off the lead from a breaker, and you splicing it on,,it will have no real value from a breaker and easy to get hold of

I would agree with splicing- much easier option.
Had occasion to work on the front wiring quite a bit recently and although not same model, I can tell you there are no connectors on the loom to plug in to. Just solder another bit on after sliding some yellow heat shrink on first.

Here's a link to the actual loom.

The new plugs are called 'pin bush housings' and are available and cheap but they DONT come with the pins.

Oh ok, I wonder what that plug by the washer bottle is? I have looked all over the area for a loom 'bit' that looks ripped off, or damaged. Only thing I have found is a little plug that is exposed by the washer bottle.
Best thing for me to do is get a meter on the suspected plug, and check if there is a feed when I switch on the fogs :) ......
Then go off to a scrap yard!
Thanks guys :)

Could be the plug for the bottle heater? Not sure if the wiring would be present even if you don't have the option

Probably the plug needed for head lamp washer pump.
I too had one, but as no headlamp washer pump, it just hangs there.
Be sure to test it with bonnet down and doors shut
