Chrysler Crossfire
License plate light


This is one information page of my collection of what I have repaired on my Crossfire.

Note:
You should not do any repair on your car if you don't have enough experience and knowledge! You use this information at your own risk! Don't blame me if something goes wrong.


Content:

Some Mercedes from 1997 to 2008 maybe have the same light.

Note:
When working with the electric parts disconnect the battery! When disconnecting the battery the alarm and radio will be reset, be sure to have any codes that's needed!

Chrysler Crossfire: License plate light

1, License plate light:

My license plate lights are aging. Lot of cracks in the lens cover.

There are a lot of cracks at the lens cover and the holes around the screws are also destroyed. It could be attempting to 3D-Print new glasses, just because I'm curious. But are the other details okay, the lamp house etc ?

The lamp holder doesn't look good, something wrong with the plastic.

I tried to gentle loosen the lamp house, bending the hooks on the backside aside. But they are very difficult to reach because it's very narrow space behind.

Old plastic is fragile and both hooks cracked when I removed it.

There are sign that the plastic has been overheated, and caused it to be that fragile. Maybe once the light bulb has been of too strong power, maximum 5 Watt. These lamp houses are beyond what's possible to repair, I have to find new ones.

No oxidation inside, it had been water proof at least.

After I have cleaned the lens cover I can really see in what bad condition it is.
The clear glass has part number: 230 820 01 66.
The chassi, lamp house, has part number: 230 820 02 56.
Both with a Mercedes logo on it.

The electric connector, if I buy a new set of license plate lights it must have this connector. Or otherwise I have to rewire the electric system which I don't want to do.

Earlier when I searched for these license plate lights I could only find used ones.
