How to replace a lamp in E320 wagon tailgate

Right side Red Tailgate lamp in my 2001 E320 wagon is burned out. How do I remove the old bulb. I removed the two screws holding the lamp panel that seems to have reverse light and a red light. After removing the two screws right side of the fixture pops up, but I can't seem to get it out. There are pop out buttons in the trim that I tried prying with a flat head screw drivers, but I am afraid to break them. Is there a trick to popping those out ? Do I even need to take the pop outs out to get at the lamp ?

I will appreciate any help/instructions. Thanks

Sorry I don't know since I don't have a wagon. You have a W210 and we have a dedicated forum for our chassis. Scroll down from here (General Mercedes-Benz) and look for us in the Sedans section. There are several wagon owners there who will be able to help you. Good luck and welcome.

Follow instructions in WIS AR82.10-P-4925A, "Removing and installing tail lamp on tailgate."

You get to remove the carpeted paneling on the tailgate as first step, which is covered in AR68.30-P-1050B, "Removing and installing liner on tailgate."

This corresponds with the instructions in your owners manual that state "bulbs (3) and (4) cannot be accessed without removal of the tailgate trim panel."

You of course don't then need to actually remove the taillight unit.

These instructions are on the service DVD

It would be better if you consult with a car dealer so that your car will not be damage.
