The attached photo shows the UK/Europe change over lever for xenon headlamps. Have been told that Mercedes mechanics perform the lever change over 'by feel' due the difficulty of the location. This may explain why I cannot find the lever at all!!! Has anyone done this please?

Edit Update - have now seen some previous threads on this so will read first (plus having problems uploading the photo!) - looks like a challenge!

Just to close this issue/thread for anyone looking at it later (I shall know in future to check before raising a 'new' topic!) there are a full set of photo's and instructions in an earlier thread at:-

http://www.benzworld.org/forums/r171-slk-class/1243500-xenons-adjusting.html -

The key comment I note is that you cannot do this activity from inside the bonnet. Rather you should take off each wheel arch liner (it is suggested taking the wheel off also helps!) then remove the rear of the light cover and switch the lever.
Photo's of the arrangement are shown on the earlier thread - not quite the simple job I thought but at least I now know how to do!.
