MVS Volvo Forums member Guiness06 has a problem. He ordered a new solenoid, but it has no wires(!):
Have diagnosed that the CVVT Solenoid Wiring is faulty so ordered a new one however this came (from US to France) without the connector so need to make new connector in fact plan to solder directly onto pins to connect to existing harness wires.
Current connections are (as in photo) green/orange wire is pin 1, yellow brown is pin 2 but problem is that on the new solenoid (see photo) I can find no markings so need to know which relates to the wiring harness (green/orange wire).

If you can wait until tomorrow morning ater 10:00 AM (EST) PM me, my mechanic will be here.
He JUST did this (last week) with one of my cars, it didn’t seem to take him very long at all but I wasn’t watching
Where /who did you get this from?
I remembered the connector is supposed to be included with everything, it was when I bought mine last week.
It may be easier if I get the connector and send it to you (if they can be bought separately) as it’s very small
