How to change right side headlamp bulb on 98 Eclass?


It is not a Xenon.
Any suggestions on how to do it? I cannot seem to get my hand in there.

Anything else I should check? FYI 2 nights ago I swamped the car in a 9inch puddle.

Thanks Gary

I usually end up removing the air cleaner assm to do the right side. The hard part for a novice is the air intake snorkel on the front of the air cleaner, the one that lets air into the bottom of the box. The intake runner coming out of the intake is pretty easy, either unsnap the 2 metal clips on the one side of the air mass meter or undo the one clamp on the other side, your choice. Once the air tube coming out of the air cleaner is removed, just pull up on the air cleaner box and it will unsnap from the chassis, there are 3 plastic lugs which go in to rubber grommets on the chassis. If any of the rubber grommets are still attached to the air cleaner box after you remove it, pull the grommet/s off and put them back into the holes on the chassis.
You can then remove the door on the back of the headlight assembly to reach the bulb.

Gilly, thanks a lot for your detailed answer.

Looks like it'll be a breeze, now that I know what to do.

On our MB's, buying the bulb fromt he dealer usually means free installation. (Not with cluster bulbs...)

On Canadian models, the DRL's cause the low beams to burn out a little faster, and on both the C230 and the E300 this summer, we had sets of headlamp bulbs replaced, and the dealer did them for free on both the W202 and the W210.

Give it a try!
