Eurolights and sidemarkers 126

HI all,

i need some info on installing Eurolights for a 126 body (300SD). i got some used Eurolights from Germany, but i heard that the U.S. sidemarkers will not work (fit) with the new Eurolights. I found some clear sidemarkers on ebay that will only fit 85-91 126 cars (are those the ones i need?). If I am not mistaken beginning in 85 all 126 style MB's had Eurolights. Also, I am curious if there have to be any modifications made in order to mount the Eurolights (the old Headlight frames are just held in place by 4 large plastic wheels). I am just trying to get some info before i try to install the new lights, so if anyone has installed Eurolights in their 126 bodystyle or knows of any websites that might explain the installation I would greatly appreciate it.

300SD (321,893 miles)

Not all '85's had euro's. Mine were U.S. spec. I got the euro's form and the clear side markers on Ebay. Good luck.

The US spec side markers work and fit fine with the Euro's I installed on the 560.
