What do you mean failed?

You mean you couldn't get the chrome tape to stick?

Or you couldn't get it in there cleanly?

Alon - (or anyone else) -

Did you get your hands on the correct vacuum tubing for your lights?

I'm having trouble finding the correct vacuum tubing. The dealer hasn't been very helpful in that regard - they only sell short lengths specific to a certain engine part/area. I can't find any of that small white tubing anywhere. Does Parts Shop have any? Is there an MB part number I can quote? Thanks!

Chris

I believe it is 000-158-14-35 for the white vacuum line, and 117-078-03-81 for the connectors.

If there are still any outstanding questions on the Euro light adjuster, I have pretty much documented the install on my 190

http://www.2phast.com/190E/190e.htm#lighting

The vacume tubing can be picked up at your local MB dealer in any length you need, the rest of the parts you can pick up at a local autoparts store.

Don't expect this mod to give you much adjustability, in actuality, its hardly worth it, as it only moves the lights a small amount

beam adjuster

2phast

i'm sorry, i have to strongly disagree with you on the height adjustments.

i don't know which adjuster you have [there are 2 types], i get about 2 inches per setting. that can add up [or subtract] quite quickly.

where do you keep your "normal"setting on 0 or 1?

i have mine on 1, that way i can raise them about 2 inches or lower them [about] 4. that is significant.
personally i think this is one of the coolest features on my car.

below is picture of my adjuster

2phast - great link, thanks for the pics.

JCE - I ordered the parts from the numbers you gave me. The parts guy at the dealer was almost, but not quite completely, useless. He couldn't tell me the length of the tubing from that number, so I just ordered one. I'll wait and see how much I get and take it from there. Thanks again.

Peter: you can voice your opinion anytime, but remember you have a different car and different lights. I have a 190 with Hellas and the Euro adjuster like yours. Driving on the street the difference between settings 0 and 5 are minimal at best.

Glad you like yours, I was just expecting a bit more from them, but considering their intended purpose (turning the lights down when the trunk or rear seat is full) then of course they are operating as they should.

Mushedroom,

I hate to hit you over the head with this, but read his signature.

Not to single you out or pick on you or anything, but I this happens so often it's killing me.

Most of us put what car we own in our signature, and we keep asking, "what model do you have?", or "do you have a W124?", when it is right there in his signature.
