Headlight change for 2006/2007 Mercedes E320 CDI

I am a rebuilder and I am building myself a 2006 E320 CDI. When I purchased the 2007 headlights to fit my 2006 cara I purchased 2007 xenons with self adjusting. I could see that the shape is the same...but headlight plugs are different. I need you to tell me how or supply me a wireing diagram with colors to tell me how to change the 2006 to a 2007 xenon self adjusting...(my 2006 car did not have self adjusting OR xenon...)on the new headlights. IO have self adjusting and xenon....if it does something else I can not tell. Can U help me?

    Problem...you gave me a generic wiring diagram for a VW beetle. Mine is a 2006 Mercedes E320. I am told the wiring is the same for Zenon and halogen...now my car is a 2006 E320 and the headlights (complete assembly) I purchased is from a 2007 E320. I purchased the plugs that fit the newer headlight assembly and it comes with numbered wire (as if your wireing loome had been cut a foot from the headlight. There is several wires going to the headlight (2 big plugs) and wires going to the turn signal and parking lights...and Fog lights. All of these have different color strips and each has a bundle. I feel they are the same for the zenon as non zenon...the zenon has a ballast. I need a diagram showing what color wire goes to what pin and plug. I do not know if the 2006 and 2007 have different color wires.

    So the diagramn you sent is for the wrong car (VW BEETLE) and it does not show me which of the 9 wires each side goes to what pin/plug...according to wire color and pin number (if the plugs have pin numbers U can see)

Hi Ed,
I believe you need to go online to the manufacturer of the new lights you bought and decribe exactly what you are doing. They should be able to give you a diagram showing how to splice in to the old wires, or at the least a step by step explanation. If they are self adjusting, it is extremely important that the right wires are mated. If I am not mistaken you need two tiny relays in there as well. If they don't have a website, call their technical dept. The guys are usually more than willing to help out.

I'm fairly certain as you probably know that the wire colors will not be the same, so you will have to mix. (Make a diagram you can keep somewhere for the future).

Best of luck!

Well, the task is not as simple as it seems as there is going to be a complete change in the voltage discharge from your battery and also there is a variation in the stress applied on your current wiring in order to use a High-Intensity Discharge bulb. But, if your confident in your work then proceed to do so with the wiring diagram given below...

Good luck with your car!

Four screw for headlight),remove your signal light for 2 screw,other 2 are in front side (visible)remove wiring and vacuum for adjustment range,.
------------------------
Ok, do you have HID bulbs, or do you have the standard xenon bulbs? The optional HID bulbs should never need replacing for the life of the vehicle. Which is good, because they're really expensive. This is important because replacing the xenons is easy. It's so easy there's no procedure.

The normal xenon bulbs are not even worthy of a replacement procedure in the manual, so the process must be pretty simple...

There's a rubber or plastic boot on the back of the headlight assembly, inside the engine compartment. The wires that energize the bulb go through the middle of it. Unscrew it from the housing, and there's your bulb. Install the new bulb(s) without touching them with your hand. The oils in your fingerprints will crack the bulb when it heats up. Use clean cotton gloves or a hanky to install the bulb in its socket, and reinstall the gasket/bulb socket assembly. The warranty book says it should take less than a half-hour, and that includes enough time for the mechanic to walk out into the parking lot, get the car into the shop, change the bulbs and drive the car back to the lot.

thanks.please do rate the solution.thank you for using fixya.keep updated.

CHANGING THE HEADLIGHT ON AN E320 MBZ


It pretty straight forward of you open the hood and look at the back of the headlamp. You see a metal clip right where the wiring harness plugs into the back of the lamp. Just take a common screw driver and pop the clip out (be careful you don't pop the clip down into oblivion as it does tend to spring out with a bit of force.) The clip is held in place by two star headed screws. You do not need to mess with these, just pop the clip out from under the screw head. I assume it will say something to this effect when you buy the new bulb but be sure not to touch it directly with your skin as the oils in your skin will shorten the bulb's life considerably.

Check engine light is on


Replacing the engine fuel filter on a 2005 E320 CDI is one of the easiest things you might consider doing yourself. It's located near the front of the engine right on top. You have to remove the plastic covers over the engine manifolds, (also easily done but don't lose the bolts that hold it on). Once you do that you'll see it right in front of you. The replacement part from MB comes with everything you'll need - O-rings, gasket, etc. Once you have the filter installed you have to "bleed" the air out of the system. The filter unit has a bleed screw on top. Just loosen it and crank the engine until all the air is out of the system, then tighten again.
