Is there any way to replace ballast for the led running lights of my 2015 Brabus Smart car without tearing off the whole front body panels of the car?

LED lights have driver circuits that while technically not “ballasts,” usually occupy an enclosure that’s mounted mid-cable between the connector and bulb. Many refer to them as ballasts.

So do I have to take all the panels (hood, fenders, bumper and 2 lower side pieces of the front end off to replace it?

Here’s a video showing incandescent bulb replacement:


Unless your car has been modified, the process should be the same with no disassembly other than popping off the hood, removing the bulb dust covers, and popping off the bulb retaining clips as shown in the video. There are other YouTube videos too.

I hope this helps.
