    Hi all :)

    I need to replace my mirror indicator bulbs. There appears to be 3 bulbs in each mirror and 2 have failed on one mirror.
    Don't suppose there is a 'how to' on changing the bulbs?

    Though I am thinking that my last attempt at bulb replacement (climate control - centre console) cost me nearly £80 so maybe I should let the pro's sort it! lol :)

    Thanks

    Kyle :)

    The bulbs are sealed in and you replace the complete lens circa £18 from MB I have the instructions that you can have

    Hi, been lurking here and took this advice when replacing mine, though my local dealer took £24 for my SLK lamp. Then i found the bulbs are not sealed in and easily replaced......:(

    Very sorry if this was the case, I fitted the same mirror to my 129, that had bulbs and it was sealed, there could be more than 1 version and I can point that out the next time
