I bought Xeon light assemblies L & R

Part numbers 144 345-00 & 144 346-00 complete assemblies for my 1998 e300 TD. My Benz is a 210.025, 606.962

Do I need to change the computer to see the new Xeon light assemblies over the stock NON Xeon assemblies? Or just plug and play?

It's plug in SDS and play. There is a setting for HID lamps, since they have different power requirements.

Of course, you're also supposed to have the levelers.

First: SDS is what?
Second: Levelers OK I'll start looking

SDS is Star Diagnostic System. The dealer has it. A busy independent might also have one (it's quite expensive).

You should probably be able to get someone to recode the system for the HID lamps for a minimal fee. It really is as easy as plugging in and changing a setting. Until you do, you'll probably get the "lamp out" malfunction every time you turn on the lights. Then again, you might get lucky.

I am finally installing the Xeon-Xeon light assemblies and am finding a few items for discussion.
a. Levelers- The leveler motors are inside the headlight assemblies. The have a 5 or 6 wire plug in. Where do I find this plug in and to what does it hook up to. Should be some type of leveling measuring device.
B Mounting bracket ears- The one with the large hole is broken off. It looks like the old housing will interchange. The question is with the leveler motor located inside the light assembly....How do i remove the motor shaft from the light leveling post?
