I am being told by...
I am being told by the Mercedes dealership that the turn signal lights located on the driver's side view mirror is not replaceable and the complete side view mirror must be replaced. Vehicle is a 2002 Mercedes S500 (V8-5.0L).Is this true?
Also, I am told this vehicle comes equipped with HID headlamps which is standard for this model vehicle. At present, the low beam bulb is blown on the passenger side. Is this also correct?
Thanks for your help.

Just to confirm, the turn signals on the driver's side view mirror can only be replaced with a complete side view mirror assembly?
