On my W208 230 clk the main beam and headlight flash has stopped working.
I've checked fuse's and earths and they seem OK
Anyone come across this before

Thanks in advance

Do you need the stalk with the cruise control or just the light/indicator stalk??

I think it's just the light/indicator stalk, cruise is separate, but an MB parts counter will know.
Don't replace it unless you're sure though, it could be an ECU/Relay, get a test light on it 1st. Have you power @ the fuses?

I don't know if the W208 CLK is the same as my W203 C Class, but high/main beam does not have a fuse, it's controlled electronically by the front CAN BUS. (None serviceable).

I would suggest you get it checked out before you start throwing parts at it.

CAN is an acronym for Controller Area Network. It is a digital communication protocol for the various systems in the car.
