Hi

Just noticed the nearside low beam is out on my w211 e220 cdi. The offside is fine.

Should I just buy a replacement bulb or is there likely to be something else wrong here?

Can anyone tell me what type of bulb is required? It is an HID Xenon I think.

Any help appreciated cheers.

Hi
You will need a D2S 35 watt bulb. When one of mine went 2 years ago it also took out the ballast, or did the ballast take out the bulb? I don't know.
So I just bought a pair of cheap bulbs off of Ebay for about a tenner with a view to just using them for fault finding. But because changing a bulb is such a pain, needing double jointed hands, the cheap bulb is still fitted and working fine.
The replacement used ballast came off of Ebay, new ones are very expensive, although I have bought a cheap standby new one off of Ali Baba.
When fitting the bulb do not touch the lens and do not deviate from the standard heat range which I think is 4300k.
Many members on here will advocate fitting expensive bulbs and fitting them in pairs....pays your money etc etc etc. Mine work fine.
