e320 brake lamp

I've seen this issue posted before. The "bulb" warning came on in my '97 e320 sedan and I discovered that the back passenger brake lamp was not working.

I replaced the lamp and it worked for a short time before the warning came back on. I have heard that the contacts on the mount are responsible. Is there anyone who can recommend a quick fix to this problem?

I don't have the same model as you do, but the slk's were having the same problem. Before the recall, several people tried a quick fix. You will have to do a search of the R170 forum. It may work for you.
Was there a recall on your brake lights by any chance?

No recall..and I've seen the problem posted before. The brake light works when I screw it in, and then will stop working intermittently.

Hi, Tpush, welcome to the forum.

Head to the 210 forum, there is a DIY sticky for all sorts of things, that socket issue included. Whenever you have a specific issue about your model that's the best place to post.

Take care and enjoy the ride,
Greg

On my 1998, I had the same kind of problem. Turns out, the circuit had melted somewhere inside the the housing. The dealer replaced at no cost.
