1999 C230 Kompressor: headlight

This answer was rated:

I have a headlight out on a 1999 C230 Kompressor. Is this simple enough I can change it myself?

HiCustomer do you know if you have Xenon headlamps? Is it the high or low beam that is out? Which side is out?

I cannot speak on the XEON light but it is the low beam on the passenger side.

Ok, the right side might be a tighter squeeze than the left but it's not that difficult. I've attached a diagram and the instructions. I've also attached a picture of the two different bulbs. The Xenon bulb will be held in with a round collar instead of a wire spring clip. Make sure that the lights are off when you are replacing the bulb. If you have any questions just let me know.
