IS THERE ANYWAY TO GET WATER OUT OF U.S HEADLIGHTS ?? (OLD S-CLASS) COULD I TAKE IT APART AND APPLY WAX TO FILL IN ANY CRACKS. I CAN'T SEE ANY VISIBLE CRACKS BUT I DO SEE DROPLETS INSIDE MY HEADLIGHTS.

IF THIS DOESN'T WORK CAN I GET THE EURO LOOK BY JUST PUTTING EURO LENSES ON IT OR DO I NEED THE ENTIRE ASSEMBLY TO GET THE COMPLETE LOOK ??? ALSO HOW CAN I GET AND INSTALL THE EURO HEADLIGHT WIPERS, THE ONES THAT ARE THE IN THE OTHER DIRECTION THAN THE U.S VERSION ??? THANK YOU

What year is your car??? There are several old "S" class models & even more headlights.
Most headlights have replacable lens.

THE CAR IS A 86' 420 SEL
IF I REPLACE JUST THE LENSES, WILL THAT GIVE ME THE COMPLETE LOOK OF THE EURO HEADLIGHT ASSEMBLY.
CAN I TAKE APART MY U.S HEADLIGHTS AND APPLY WAX OR SOMETHING LIKE THAT TO FILL IN MINOR CRACKS THAT MIGHT BE LETTING WATER INSIDE ???
THANK YOU VERY MUCH

To get the euro look you must replace the complete headlight assembly.
You can purchase new U.S. version lens for your old assemblies. If you go 100w bulbs the electrical connector at the bulb might melt.
