Hi! I am a newbie and been reasearching on getting the right LED bulb replacement for my 2015 CLA 250. Mine has the standard Halogen H7 bulb and I went online and got this replacement but it don;t fit my h7 housing ... is there a particular type of LED bulb I need to get to just do a straight change out?? this is the unit I bought but did not fit the H7 light housing... I try to twist in but it won;t catch on to anything

I did try to look for it... but there are some differences between the Halogen H7 type vehicle and those with the HID.... there is a lot of discussion on the HID but not much on the Halogen version!

Just wonder if I bought the wrong type of H7 builb that is why it did not fit the housing ..... the connector fits ok! just the bulb would not sit into the housing when I try to twist lock it

I found one in Ebay that have similar H7 socket like the Halogen bulb! see if anyone have tried this or is there somthing I am doing wrong... seems to be a straight forward bulb swap but with this I am stuck!!!

Actually the posts do refer to finding suitable LED replacements for the stock halogens and the various mounting issues ... totally separate topic from the hid setups.
Someone did find one that “fits” ... hope you locate that thread.

I bought H7 LED Bulbs for my 2015 CLA 250 as well.....and they didn't catch either. I wrote back to the Supplier on Amazon and it turns out that I needed to buy the metal clip adaptors as well. They don't tell you that you need them at first,....but if they don't grab anything....that is the Problem. After I got the clips,....clicked on PERFECTLY. I also switched out the Day Running/Brights as well....and there was a Trick to that too. :D Now it looks SWEET!
