If its the small amber light on the side of the front bumper. you can use a small screwdriver to pop out the lens or reach from underneath and push it out. once the lens is out just turn the socket to expose the bulb. sometimes the socket gets burnt or melted. there is a kit that Mercedes sells if needed.

Blown headlight fuse on 1995 MERCEDES BENZ E320

Headlights, emergency flashers and turn signals are not working on my 1995 Ford Bronco. Just replaced the battery and this is the first time I have encountered this problem.

Check your fuses. Under the drivers side there's a small panel. Open it. That panel on the back side, will have a decal on it. Look for the proper fuses for those circuits (fuse for headlights) and the relay for the flashers and turn signals. Pull the headlight fuses with some needle nose pliers. You'll see it may looked "burnt" if it's bad. If you don't see or cannot tell, just pull a different fuse and check it to compare. The relay may not be bad at all (it'd have to be tested with an OHM meter and power supply). OHM meter can be used to test fuse too, but just looking at those fuses can also determine if their burnt. Make sure your headlights are not burnt out either (but probably are not).

Usually a fast turn signal means that there is a light out. You should probably check all of your lights, including back-up lights, and turn signals. If there is one out then replacing the burnt out bulb should fix the problem.
