Remove the cover on the rear. See the owner's manual.

W210 - theres a big grey cover on the back of the headlight. Unclip it (2 clips), then pull the plug from the rear of the bulb. The bulb is held in place by a metal clip (or is that 2 I can't remember). The clips hinge away from the bulb (you will have to squeeze them). The bulb then pops out.

Reassembly is the reverse. The bulb can only go in the socket one way.

There isn't much room on that side so be prepared to lose some skin.

Parrot is correct one thing to remember do not touch the glass portion of the bulb the oil on your skin shortens bulb life.

If you prefer, you can remove the headlight assembly from the car for the operation. The job would take slightly longer, but the bulb job would be so easy in comparison that it wouldn't be a severe difference, and you won't skin your knuckles. If you do remove the headlight, just be sure to not move any of the adjusters when you remove the mounting hardware. The large plastic screw on the lower inside corner (you can't miss it) is the one that is most likely to want to move on you.
