How to replace headlight bulb

The passenger side headlight of my 2001 SL 320 is gone, and I need to replace it.
I have a replacement bulb that I got from the dealer a few years ago, but don't know how to replace it.

Could you explain how to do it?

Is the SL the same as the SLK??

If so on rear of light unit is a black plastic cover.
Squeeze tap at bottom and rotate cover up and off.
Remove plug connector on globe.
Slip spring off globe base.

Reverse.

DO NOT allow fingers to touch glass on globe. Clean with metho if you do.

Post 320 SL Front Passenger Headlight replacement

1. Drain some of the fluid in the reservoir or else some could spill in the next step.
2. Remove single nut and washer that mounts reservoir to frame.
3. Wiggle/lift reservoir out of way.
4. Squeeze two tabs at top of light bulb cover. It may not pop off but gently inserting a flathead screwdriver will separate it at the top.
5. Replace bulb.
6. Replace everything.

Very easy to do. Borrowed my dads manual to do mine on the weekend. A little bit tricky to get to though and temperatures of -5C don't help!
