Stehl tow dolly wire harness repair

I found out that if your wife tries to back up with your toad on the dolly, the swivel plate turns enough to snap the wire harness to the fenders. Turns out to be a way easier fix than what I thought. I bought the complete wiring harness from Stehltow. It comes in 4 sections, one for each fender, a tee to transition to the tongue and the tongue to hitch. These all connect into each other
You have to remove the wheel on whichever side. Feed the tongue harness towards the back and from underneath there is just enough room to pull the wires down for slack (sorry the pics upside down).
There is an access hole in the end of the axle to get to the connector.
I took an aluminum back scratcher that I keep in my car and cut it down to make a pull tool for the connector in the axle. Gently tug on the connector until it clears the hole. Once that's done just push the wires back into the axle, and pull the slack up the tongue. Make sure you zip tie the wires back to where the factory had them.

I cut the loose ends off, and made my fender lights reflectors.

I don't travel at night anyway.
