part number for plug for rear hatch grip/ license plate lights

Bought a new an super expensive rear hatch grip. The parts with the microswitch and license plate lights as the old one was in bad shape.


To my dissapointment when I removed the old one I was greeted with a the mess in the attached pic. No words to describe it...



I need the part number of the plug on the cars side that slots into the white 4 pin socket. Anyone know what it is or where to find the equivalent? The wiring of the pins would also be good to know..

Don't really want the start breaking apart the new one, and soldering the wires to those small pins is goinfg to be difficult.



Thanks!

Yikes - what a mess...

Btw, it helps if you put you car model and year in your signature.

But since I know you have a 2002 4.6is, here the tailgate wiring diagram...

The switch is S117 and your 4-pin connector is X1739. Looking for a source now....

Go to a breaker and cut the plug off. Easiest way to get a body side harness. Otherwise BMW makes you build one as they sell the pins, harness connector, etc all as separate pieces. Big pain much of the time.

Good call - the connector is likely to be used in multiple location, on multiple vehicles...

Right you are. Went to a local scrap yard. They've never had a e53 but a couple of e39.

Found an identical connector in the passenger side dashboard airbag
