Mercedes Benz is known for producing sophisticated and stylish vehicles, and to maintain its reputation, its automobiles are made with some of the most state-of-the-art components in the market. Even the headlight assemblies of models like the Mercedes Benz 560sel are highly durable and efficient. These assemblies are available with a wiper system that washes of dirt and dead bugs from the light lens, keeping it beaming brightly. Made with durable materials, these lights are bound to provide outstanding and long-lasting road visibility. However, these components aren't immune to some common headlight problems. Be sure to watch out for these lighting malfunctions to ensure you can attend to them ASAP.
Several factors may contribute to headlight flickering. One factor may be that you have a loose or dying light bulb. If the bulb is loose, then simply remove the headlight casing and securely fasten the bulb. If the bulb is about to die out on you, then it's time to replace it. If your headlight still flickers after bulb adjustment, then you might need to check your headlight wiring. If the wires of your headlights come loose or become damaged then you may have to refasten them or have them replaced as well.
Often times, water and fog can build up within your Benz's headlight assembly. This problem usually happens when a headlight is cracked. When fog and/or moisture build up in the lighting assembly, its beam is seriously impeded. One of the best solutions for this problem to to have the entire Mercedes Benz 560sel headlight assembly replaced.
Dimming is often caused by electrical system failure. When driving at night with many components on-like your headlights, radio, and power windows-your headlights might suddenly become dimmer. This happens when you have a weak battery or a faulty alternator. In this case, you must have your substandard battery and/or alternator replaced immediately in order to optimize your headlight's performance.
