Need good undamaged 1994 164 S left and right front fender parking (marker) light housings/lens, the long skinny ones in the side of the fenders ahead of the tires. Part no:60568565 and 60568564, gray housing, orange lens.

Don't need the bulb holders which are held on to the housings by two screws.

PO evidently installed higher amperage bulbs which partially melted the housings and cracked the orange lenses, finally burned out.

Thanks,

I can grab a set off a parts car. How do they come out? I've been trying to change a bulb on my LS and I can't get it off...Much easier on the Q.

I have a front set coming from someone else, but I thank you for the offer.

To remove the lights, though:

Be VERY careful pulling them out, as they can be stubborn if the housing is distorted by bulb heat. They come out only one way, the front popping straight out, it having a tab straight/perpendicular into the fender, and then it slides forward to disengage the rear tab which runs for and aft. You cannot just use a screwdriver or knife to pry on just the orange lens at the front, you have to go about half an inch further under the front part of the gray housing to lift it from the bumper/fender opening about half an inch. Then you have to slide it fwd about 3/8 inch or so to lift the rear out of the opening after the rear fore/aft tab is released from it's slot. There might be heat caused swellings in the housing at the bulb location which will hang up on the fender opening. You will have to esp careful there.

I haven't read the manual yet, the above is based on my own trials.

The bulb is evidently supposed to be a G194, rated at 0.271 amps. Couldn't find a lower amperage version at the parts store. Do not use the similar G168, which is rated at a higher 0.357 amps. Certain to melt the housing, the G194 is bad enough, judging by my damaged housings with that bulb.
