Question about 1988 Mercedes-Benz 300

1 Answer

The front and passenger marker lights do not light up. We attempted to change the bulbs.......they still do not light up. The front bulb, as you know, performs double duty as the turn signal blinker, which does function. Also, all of our interior dashboard and shifter counsel lights do not function. I attempted to change the fuse, still nothing. Please help.

If this is an E class

Shifter console is most likely a burnt out bulb, issue with that is you have to pull the cnter console to get to it.

The marker light if it doesnt work there is a light relay,/bulb out indicator relay (longest one in there) under the screwed down cover behind the fuses.

If it is an SE hop on over to benzworld.org for more sppecific help.

I just changed the bulb for my headlight on a 1995 Toyota Avalon fairly easily. Bought the bulb at Pepboys for 10.99. Now I noticed the the running light on the opposite side (passenger) is out. Any...


Hello,

To change the running light on the passenger side is quite simple and should take no more than 10 minutes.

1) Open the hood
2) There will be a Phillips head screw on top of the headlight close to the fender, its the only screw holding the marker light in.
3) After the screw is out simply pull the marker light straight forward (the clip in there is a right pain half the time but it'll come out)
4) Change the bulb
5) Reverse the steps to re-install the marker light

How to replace passenger turn signal bulb


The side marker light must be removed in order to get at the turn signal light.
There are two screws holding the side marker light which is situated above the turn signal.
Open the hood.
Remove the phillips head screw at the top of the side marker light.
Using a long #2 Phillips screwdriver, remove the screw on the outside of the side marker light. This can be seen by looking between the lower side of the side marker light and the top side of the turn signal.
The side marker can be moved.
The turn signal has one screw on the top of the fixture that must be removed.
Slide out the turn signal fixture. There is a small feature on the lower front corner of the turn signal fixture that you must note to properly reinstall the turn signal.
In order to get to the bulb, rotate the bulb socket 1/4 turn CW or CCW. The bulb socket is loose.
The bulb is simply pressed into the socket.
Not sure of the type, but it can be found at your locale auto parts store.
The bulb is used in several places on the 1994 GC, so get apacket with two, if possible.
Assembly in reverse. Be careful not to overtighten the screws as they are replaced

How do I change the front side marker light bulbs?


Bi-Xenons - 6000K D1S
High Beams - Osram Nightbreakers H7
Fogs - PIAA H11 Yellow Ion
Cornering Lights - Osram Nightbreakers H3
Front Park Lights - High-Powered LEDs with built-in resistors
Front Signal Lights - Sylvania Silverstar 7507A ST (Silver Bluish but lights up Amber)

Rear Signal Lights - P21W Stealth Bulbs (Silver but lights up Amber)
Reverse Lights - Sylvania Silverstar 7506ST or Error-Free LEDs

  • Turn the engine off and approach the side of the porsch with the burn-out side-marker light. If you are replacing both, start at either side; the replacement procedure is the same.
  • 2 Remove the screws from the plastic fender liner. Peel back the liner to access the area behind the fender.
  • 3 Reach your hand inside to gain access to the side-marker light's backing. Push the backing forward to release the side-marker lens; it's held in place by small clips.
  • 4 Grab the lens on the outer side and turn it over to access the back. Gently turn the bulb to release it from the plastic lens.
  • 5 Pull the bulb straight out to remove it from the electrical socket. Insert a new bulb, but do not touch the glass part of the bulb with your hand.
  • 6 Push the new bulb into the side-marker lens. Turn it clockwise to install it. Push the side-marker lens back into place. Apply gentle pressure to the lens to pop it back into its mount.
  • 7 Replace the screws along the edge of the fender liner.

    How to change side marker bulb in 1997 altima


    a53bade.gif

    The marker lights are removed by depressing the tab (arrow) with a thin bladed tool. Take care not to scratch the paint

    1. Disengage the bulb and socket assembly from the lens housing.
    2. Gently grasp the light bulb and pull it straight out of the socket.
    To install:
    1. Before installing the light bulb into the socket, ensure that all electrical contact surfaces are free of corrosion or dirt.
    2. Line up the base of the light bulb with the socket, then insert the light bulb into the socket until it is fully seated.
    3. To ensure that the replacement bulb functions properly, activate the applicable switch to illuminate the bulb which was just replaced. If the replacement light bulb does not illuminate, either it too is faulty or there is a problem in the bulb circuit or switch. Correct as necessary.
    4. Install the socket and bulb assembly into the lens housing.
