I had a long day on Tuesday, involving a blowout on the freeway, a mini
spare whose valve core had been removed, and lots of waiting to get a tire
Of course, in the middle of all that, the front-right turn signal lamp on
my 2002 C230k Sport Coupe burned out. I bought a set of replacement lamps
at the auto parts store the next day and tried last night to replace the
burned out lamp, but of course, the holder won't unscrew. The left side
turn signal lamp unscrews no problem, just as it shows in the owner's
manual, but the right-side lamp won't budge.
Unfortunately, the area around the headlamp assembly is extremely cramped,
and I can't get any of my pliers or wrenches in there to grip the handle
on the cap for better leverage.
Does anybody have any suggestions for non-destructive ways to loosen it
up? Can I undo the bolts holding some of the cross pieces above it
without adversely affecting headlight alignment?
