If you have acquired one of these rugged W123 sedans, coupes, or station wagons and want to learn how to do some of the work on it on your own then here is a good place to start. Learn how to change lights and bulbs. No need to go to a mechanic for this. Let Kent walk you through the following procedures using simple hand tools:
- How to replace the outer orange turn signal lens and bulb
- How to remove the plastic headlight door (surround)
- How to remove and replace the large round headlight
- How to remove the foglight and replace the bulb inside the lens
- Warnings on what not to remove
- How to remove, inspect and replace the aluminum headlight bucket (frame)
- When a headlight bucket (frame) should be replaced
PLEASE NOTE: This video does NOT cover the procedure for adjusting the alignment of the main headlights.
Total Run Time: 10:03
If your headlight bucket is broken or damaged it will be very difficult to get the headlights aimed properly.
Kent believes one of the best safety improvements you can make on a W123 with U.S. style headlights is to get rid of the old weak sealed beam headlight bulb and replace it with more powerful and wider bearm H4 headlights. They fit right in with no modification. See related products below:
