    New GLB AMG Line LED headlights problem

    Hi all ,just joined. Owned 3 previous Mercedes over the years, just bought a new GLB 2 weeks ago. I find the dipped beam really poor, on the country roads they are just too short for safe driving when I can’t have full beam on when other vehicles near by. Garage say all correct, but I really...

    Auto headlamp and auto wiper problems.

    Hello all. I have a fairly new W164 ML 350 CDi. It has auto lights and auto wipers. Lights: Come on regardless of the switch position (i.e. OFF and AUTO seem to be the same thing). Also too sensitive in my opinion. Wipers: Far too sensitive. If on slow intermittent, even the tiniest amount...
