Replacing a GLC 250 headlight

Asked by Bertie

Am I being taken for a ride by Mercedes-Benz on a replacement headlight? I was driving my near-new GLC 250 and a bird hit one of the headlights and broke the perspex cover but there is no other apparent damage. The real damage came later when my local Benz dealership quoted for the repair: $3634 for the part and $530 labour, making a cool $4580. Two more bird strikes and I'll have spent as much on repairs as the cost of a new city runabout.

The dealership has now sharpened the quote but most companies now only sell headlamps as complete units. Yours is among the highest of the hi-tech, including a set-up to turn the lights for corners, so it's costly.
