Yes there is. Somebody has posted step by step instructions with pictures. Try the search function in this forum and try typing in the words "fog lights".

It's a fairly easy DIY job. You just have to remove the 3 torx screws located on the mesh holding the fog lights. Once you have removed the mesh you can now access the rear of the bulb assembly. Just twist and turn to remove the bulb then swap in your new bulb.

If you have C300 Sport it uses H7 bulbs.

can you describe more about the twist and turn to remove the light bulb after taking out the mesh?

I really can't find any DIY post for this part.

As mentioned above, removed the 3 torx screws holding the mesh/light surround to reveal the foglight. Now reach around the back of the lamp assembly until you can feel the rear of the bulb holder....now twist the holder (may appear tight at first) to release the holder from the fog lamp assembly...gentle pull away to reveal the holder and H7 bulb....next gentle pull the bulb away from the holder.....replace the bulb and re-install in reverse process...

Hope that helps....

Any DIY for Changing the Rear Brake Pads? Is this something I can do myself if I have never done it before? or should it be taken to a Mercedes Shop?

Hi Vic Viper if possible can you make some links w/pics for installation of tail lights, removal of the side markers and removal of trunk linning. Or if anyone else is able to help me it would greatly be appreciated. Thanks

Hello, new to the site and to Mercedes. Just got my new 2011 C300 last weekend.

I have a question if someone can answer, my car don't have P1 and I will like to install the rear view mirror with auto diming and home link, will that be possible? Will my car have all the necessary hardness ready to install it?

Just want to see if someone knows, don't want to spend the money on the rear view mirror and then not being able to install it.

Thanks

I am blacking out my window trim. I have figured out how to remove and re-attach the upper trim strip (the one that runs from the A pillar to the C pillar).

But I do not see how to remove the trim strips at the base of the windows on the doors. I do not want to just pry them up without knowing for sure they are just attached with clips!

Can someone please post info (pictures!) showing how these strips attach?

Thanks.

Bump!

I have successfully blacked out the upper window trim. It's super easy to do with 3M 471 vinyl tape.

But I do not know how to remove the lower chrome trim. Can someone please chime in on how to do it, or where I can look for instructions?



Thanks.
