It would help to know what model MB you have.

You have to remember that the wiring for euro lights is different from US assemblies, in particular, in Europe, they don't run the corner lights like in the US, they're only turn signals and usually only have a single element bulb. There are rewiring fixes, or in some cases, conversion harnesses to power the corners as required by US DOT.

The corner lights on Euro lamps of that vintage are only turn signals.
