      it should have come with the harness. of not call the manufacture and they should email the directions to you as for trailer brakes that will come with the brake controller. for a video if its not on youtube i would say one doesn't exist.

      You'd better use the porsche diagnostic tool to diagnose if you are sure that you can solve it by yourself, or you can also consult a professional mechanic. The MB STAR system, when it made its debut, was much more capable because it was PC-based (IBM T30 laptop), but it was also very versatile

      because it incorporated a HHT emulation mode (for backward compatibility) along with a "multiplexer" intermediate unit between the PC and the car,

      which allowed the connection of a variety of different diagnostic connection cables, depending on which diagnostic system the car in question happened

      to use. For the oldest cars (i.e. the C126, early R129 SL models, early W124s and W140s, etc.) a "four-pin" diagnostic cable was provided. For second-

      generation cars, such as the E500E, 400E/E420, middle and later R129s, middle and later W140s, the familiar "38-pin" plug is provided. There are also

      OBD-2 interface cables for model year 1996 and later cars, as well as a 14-pin cable for European diagnostic systems. All of these cables allow the

      combination of the MB STAR with the in-line multiplexer unit to fully interface with any particular car's computers.The below website may be helpful for you to find the tool. hope it is helpful to you. http://www.plusobd.com/.../...gnostic-tool.html

    The window on the driver's side is not functioning the mechanic has told me that the "teeth" are broke what do I do ?
    can the "teeth" be replaced or do I have to buy the whole motor assembly for the driver's side window or could I just replace the "teeth"?

      If the teeth have sheared off from the motor or regulator assembly you would likely only be able to replace the units as an assembly, not individual parts. I have never heard of overhauling a window motor or regulator. Though it probably is possible, it's likely not worth the extra effort and/or labor.
