searching the diagrams now, doesnt show you have the xenon code but diagrams from 9/02 on only show the xenon option,

this low beam was in the outer portion of the light correct? behind the eyeball looking lens?

Ask Your Own Mercedes Question
Mercedes Mechanic: Lou P. master tech, Mercedes Technician replied 6 months ago

this outer one is the low beam and the inner one is the high beam.

just to be on the same page, 99% of the times customers replace the high beam on accident and are not on the correct area of the housing .

have to ask to be sure.

Mercedes Mechanic: Lou P. master tech, Mercedes Technician replied 6 months ago

it may not be installed in this year, you would think a 15 year mercedes tech would know this stuff lol, these ML are the worst diagrams and no diagnosis info, i will have to opt out at this time.

if no one else pick up on this i will jump back on
