Hi all

I hit a deer on my travels which has pushed back the headlight on my 57 W211. Is there anyway to repair the brackets as MB want £600 for a new one.

Thanks

Perhaps a decent 2nd hand one? Must be plenty about in the usual places?

You could try a local sheet metal worker - they may be able to bash it back into shape for you, if it's not too badly bent.

Cheers,

Can't see a repair kit on EPC so probably isn't one.

Do you have a part number or failing that a VIN/REG?

Thanks so just quote that part number at my local MB?

Yes, just quote the number and don't forget to ask for a discount from your local parts department as you will have to pay for p&p from Inchcape.

It is listed as a holder LH or RH, Repair solution.

There are cheaper ones on ebay but I cannot guarantee the quality of the fit.

Do compare prices between Inchcape and other dealers - I have sometimes looked parts up on EPC then input the numbers into Inchcape to obtain a price .

Sometimes the same part is cheaper at my dealer ( with discount ) and sometimes Inchcape are cheaper ( with their quoted discount ) .

It pays to shop around .

With an item like a plastic headlamp mount - it could also be worth asking specialist Mercedes breakers like Mercman , since a used one would do the job just as well .

I stand corrected :thumb:

Before I had the reg there were too many options and didn't see it

There's a repair kit, you can get it from any MB dealer - £30 or so, kits differ between model years so make sure you get the correct one.
