first thing is to check for power at the wires. not sure of the wire colors but one should be brown which is ground. one wire should have 12 volts when you turn on the lights

1) Also check the sockets for corrosion.

2) You have a W210 and we have a lot of sticky DIY threads.
**Hint: Look under the sedans heading.

3) Welcome to the forum.

The plastic bulb sockets crack and create a loose connection. They have a replacement kit for them.

Where are these replacement kits available. My local Benz dealer wants to sell me the whole headlight assembly and the local parts stores don't carry the sockets.

The Dealer, PN # 210-826-05-82. Don't bother cutting and splicing in the new wires unless they're cracked, burnt etc. Just use the new plastic housing, that's probably all you need. A small screwdriver will remove the wires from the housing. Good luck
