Front Clearence Light Wiring Harness - Access

I was replacing my old front clearance light with a bulb type - cheaper, $2.99 at Big R - when the wire came loose from the wiring harness.

Is there an easy fix for this, or do I have to remove the bulk head to get to the wiring harness.

I had it almost fixed when I saw that I needed to cut the wire to the clearance light shorter. I must have played with the wire too much and it unplugged from the wiring harness inside the wall.

I thought of either fishing a wire to the middle clearance light, or running a new wire from the fuse bus.

I also thought of taking it to the local dealer (non-Airstream) and having him take a look at it - at $85 bucks an hour.

Your advice would be appreciated.

If there is a video, I could use the link too.

Thanks.

When you said you went from the inside on your 2000, was there an access panel, or did you go through the bulkhead storage.

What did you do, remove the bulkhead? Or did you cut an access hole?

The 2000 Excella has a storage cabinet instead of a bulkhead it is made of Oak I cut access hole to get at the wires . Hope this helps , you won't believe the sloppy kind of wiring job the factory does .
