About Headlight Panels
The Mercedes-Benz headlight panel is part of a structural frame which is made of sheet metal and is positioned at the front of the vehicle and attached behind your front bumper of the vehicle using metal rivets and bolts. The Mercedes-Benz headlight panel is then covered with a body coloured cover made of fibreglass or plastic to match the rest of the bodywork.
The headlight is mounted to the Mercedes-Benz headlight panel and the panel supports the weight of the headlight. On some vehicles the headlight panel is one large framework piece and on others the headlight panel consists of two parts, the driverside and the passenger side.
Because it’s covered by the front bumper the Mercedes-Benz headlight panel is well protected from the elements, but corrosion can occasionally occur. Damage is much more likely to be caused by a collision with another vehicle, which can bend or break the Mercedes-Benz headlight panel. Depending on the impact of the collision this can misalign the headlights or bumper and so replacement of the Mercedes-Benz headlight panel will be required after any serious front collision.
- Ever noticed that you've never heard a Mercedes rattle or make any kind of squealing sound? You never will either, because all of their vehicles are welded in up to 10,000 places! You're not going to find a loose nut or bolt rolling around.
- In 1924, Mercedes Benz became the first car manufacturer to include brakes on all four of a car's wheels. Not long after, in 1931, they also added suspension springs to the corners of the Mercedes Benz 170.
- Most people think of silver when they think of a Mercedes, but that iconic colour was an accident. Just before a race in 1934, the white-painted W25 was found to be 1kg over the weight limit. The paint was quickly removed, the weight limit reached, and the car won the race.
- If you thought self-driving cars were all about Tesla, then it might surprise you to know that Mercedes Benz made an autonomously driving vehicle as early as 1995. It didn't gain popularity, but it became the foundation of the modern driving technology found in every Mercedes Benz.
- Karl Benz obviously gave his name to the company, but the Mercedes part of the name comes from the daughter of his customer and friend, Emil Jellinek. Her name was (obviously) Mercedes, and it's still surprising that her name remains so attached to the iconic car brand.
