    I had two replaced during the first service on my C350e saloon.

    Will be checking them as the nights get darker and before the next service, I think they are rather cool.

    It's a very common fault unfortunately. It can be done under warranty

    One replaced on the GLC after a couple of months, another one went shortly after, but I'm waiting for the yearly service before getting it looked at.

    Yes, both rear ones replaced on my GLC under warranty.

    Only one of the rear handle lights had gone. They must know that some are dodgy as they replaced both rear ones. The two they replaced were a noticeably "warmer" shade of white than the two front handles (and the replacements).

    Checked last night, and another one is about 1/4 of the correct illumination, so it's about to go too.

    Having been reminded by this thread I checked the door handle lights on my son's S205. He hadn't noticed that the driver's light is out but the others seem OK. Another warranty item for the next service visit.
