Question about Mercedes-Benz 2009 E350
I'm trying to change my low beam bulb for my Benz E350, 2009. It seems to be next to impossible to get to the light from inside the hood. Is there a way to remove the headlight complete assembly, in order to access the back of the bulb compartment?
Right behind the headlight, in the engine compartment there is a black round plug, about 3 inches in diameter. Turn it counterclockwise and remove it. Just inside you will see/feel a small wiring harnes, wiggle it loose, then remove the bulb. Insert the new bulb, attach the wires, and the plastic cover. Here is a picture of what you're working with:

Look at the top of the headlight assembly. There is a plastic panel on top of the assembly that is held in place by two plastic pins. Remove those pins by lifting the center of the pin and then pull out the pin. Remove the panel. Then you will find two small plastic levers that will lift about 1/2 inch. They do not come out but they will release two studs that secure the assembly. After the assembly is released, slide it forward to access the bulbs you need to replace. Installation is the reverse of these procedures.

My niece has a jimmy, they should be the same. The inside should be the high beam, the outside the low, DO NOT TOUCH THE GLASS ON NEW BULBS! Oil will cook on them and pop them! Both come off the same way. Take off the big rubber thing. They are soft but over hard plastic. Just pull them off. If you have trouble, you can flip the little wire clips that hold the headlight housing in place, this will give you room to see the rubber caps enough to figure them out better. The bulb assembly rotates CCW counter clockwise, and should slip out easily. Take the wires and plug off. it should be obvious how it pulls off. Snap the new bulb into the wires without touching the glass part. Gently replace in backwards order as you removed it. Put the rubber caps on, they keep water off the bulbs. It will break them!
The passenger side was harder for me. I had to take the air cleaner off, the whole cover and filter.You should be able to see or feel the same type caps, The low beam outside, High beam inside. The same 2 wire clips are there to release the housing. Everything pretty much goes the same, other than the air cleaner has to be removed and replaced. And make sure the rubber cap is replaced! Good Luck and good motoring!

just have a philip screw driver, remove the screw, pull out the light and take the light to the nearst aurozone and they will give you the right light, and put it back the same way.

Open hood and remove the radiator site shield and the air delector on top of the headlamp assembly. You will then see 2 clips that you will pull up and then remove the headlamp assembly.
