Hi There

Just a bit of advice please. I have brought my UK registered Mercedes Benz 200 Kompressor 2006 to Spain and in the process of re-registering it. However, one of the stipulations are that it needs to have 2 rear fog lights, or if there is only one, it needs to be on left hand side. I have checked my vehicle which has only one rear fog light on the RIGHT hand side.
I am able to get another fog light fitted to the left hand side and it it costly. Please help. Thank you

Hi and welcome to SLKWorld.com from the UK Midlands - Thanks for joining us! :)

If you have the R171 model (which I presume you have if it's a 2006 car), then you'll probably find that both rear fog bulbs are already installed in the car... what it needs is to be enabled using STAR/DAS. I'm not sure what the MB dealer (or independent) policy is in Spain, but it is a simple matter of having it enabled, if you can find someone with the right equipment that's prepared to enable it for you.

Thanks
Dave

Welcome from Madrid...

Both fog lights are there, even the bulbs if you look closely, you just need to get the other one activated by Mercedes software !

If you're near Madrid and want to drop by, I can do it for you, otherwise you're going to need a trip to a dealer ( they may not know how, my local one didn't, if so let me know and I'll pass you the sequence for them to follow)...

Hi Thank you so much for this information. We are going to Mercedes dealers this afternoon so would be so grateful if you could send me the sequence.

You have been very helpful.

Sharon, when replying to a specific person/post, it's often useful to use the "Quote" button rather than the "Reply" button. This makes it much clearer to see the post & person that you're responding to (and the person quoted may also get notified that you've responded to them too).

I added the quote from Craige's (curro101) earlier post into your post above, just to make it clearer. :)
