    I have noticed the puddle light on the driver side mirror isn’t working on my 2013 S212, is it normal? Do you know how can I find the spare and how to replace it? Any guides online?
    Thanks

    Believe it’s just a standard bulb I did watch a YouTube video on it and it looks straight forward just got to line the mirror glass up and then the outer cover of the mirror pulls up and come off.

    This is a very good one. Gonna do it this weekend, though I’m a bit nervous about breaking something! That LED upgrade seems nice too, do you which bulb to replace it with exactly?

    Puddle lights are driven from the door controller. May just not be turned on, may need coding (and datacard update) etc etc -

    If the passenger one is working then chances are it’s just the bulb that’s packed up. I know for a fact mine was working previously so if I get time will whip mirror cover off and have a look at the weekend.

    I think the coding reference is probably aimed at the original poster who has fitted these mirrors to his car.

    Yeah the passenger side works fine. I’m just a bit worried about changing it and then get a bunch of error lights up the dash. Do you think any w5w t10 would work?

    I’m not 100% sure I’m just going to put a standard bulb in for now if your that worried buy the bulb from your local Mercedes dealer it won’t be expensive at all even from them.

    As for upgrading to Led I wouldn’t know what to buy.
