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?

Mercedes Mechanic: Lou P. master tech, Mercedes Technician replied 3 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.
