Bulbs only. I found compatible fitting ones and installed them. Depending on the car one might have to change the flasher relay because of the increased demand.

W126 Repairing the blower motor.

These are the steps I followed:
  1. Took the blower out (easy on a W126)
  2. Removed the plastic holder (one screw and some force)
  3. Moved the springs of the brushes out of the way and pulled the brushes outwards.
  4. Supported the cage and whacked the shaft with a hammer until it came off.
  5. The motor was very dirty and hard to turn.
  6. The shaft was struck to the top bearing (bearing was turning inside its cage instead of the shaft turning inside the bearing).
  7. Wit a small chisel took the top bearing bracket off.
  8. The top bearing was badly worn on the outside by the spring, allowing radial play.
  9. Turned the bearing (topside to the bottom) solved the radial play.
  10. Cleaned all the parts and soaked the bearing in oil for 12 hours.
  11. Reassabled.

Ive always rested the tire on my feet to align the tire with the bolt holes, that way you can lift when needed and have two hands free

Can really be helpful. For those of smaller builds, showing people how to use it can make the difference between successfully changing their wheel and not.
