Headlamp clip / retaining spring
This is a tip for changing headlights. I replaced the low beam bulb (H7) on my 2000 230C, but I couldn't get the retaining spring (or clip) to snap on, partly because you can't see how to fasten it.
The secret, according to my Mercedes tech son-in-law, is not to push it straight on, but to push first from the left (passenger) side and then to the right. I tried for 20 minutes and only hurt my finger the wrong way. The right way took 3 seconds. Hope this helps someone else.
