Changing the halogen bulbs looks easy enough on the manual guide but doesn't include instructions for bi-xenon bulbs, it ask to refer to a specialist.

I went to the dealership and they wanted $85 to do it because it's more complicated.

Anyone know how to change the H7 bulbs?

I'm not sure how old your CLA is, but I would expect it's not that old given that 2014 is the first model year.

You should be within the warranty period where a thing like this should be done for free. There is no way a light bulb should wear out that quickly except where that bulb was not correctly used or had a manufacturing defect.

I do not recommend trying to figure it out yourself because that would invalidate the warranty. Go back there and complain, this is a Mercedes-Benz CLA250, not a Chevy Cruze. You paid for a premium car, you should get a premium car and the service to go along with it.

Just saw how old this post was, hopefully you didn't do anything bad in that time.

Anyway, here is the warranty that specifically states that the light bulb that failed should be replaced under warranty.

Page 6 in your operators manual.

WEAR AND TEAR PERIOD: The following
parts listed are covered for wear and
tear during the first 24 months or 40,000
km whichever comes first . BRAKE
PADS, BRAKE DISCS, BRAKE PAD WEAR
SENSORS AND LIGHT BULBS
