Mercedes Repair Questions? Ask a Mechanic for Answers ASAP
Hi, do you have Xenon or halogen lamps?
halogen I believe, how would I know? What are the Xenon?
Is that what your bulb looks like?
Ok, if you have it hanging out by the harness it just unplugs now.
It's hard to get it unplugged.
It helps to use a rag to hold the bulb and the plug
the wires are so short, hard to get leverage. do I turn it?
There is very little room to work. The bulb just pushes into the electrical connector.
so, do I try to pull it straight out? or am I trying to turn it couter-clockwise?
Is the bulb still installed in the headlamp?
I thought you had it removed already but couldn't get the plug off the back.
I have it out of the housing, and it is just attached to the socket that has two wires running back to the housing.
that is exactly it
If you are looking at the light bulb and it just has the plug on the back then you just need to wiggle the plug off the bulb.
It's pretty tight
really, I can barely get my hand on the plug to hold it. so i just wiggle back and forth to get it off?
Yes, if you look at your new bulb or at the picture I gave you you will see that it just has two spade terminals that just push straight into the plug.
ok, I see it on your picture. I haven't picked a new on up yet.
Thank you for your help, I appreciate it.
