As the windscreen has been replaced, it’s possible the new Mercedes windscreen was manufactured incorrectly with the wrong camera fitting plate. And, looking at the image of the camera’s, the image shows an extra parts sticker which indicates the sensor has been replaced.

"Thank you for your support on my Mercedes E-Class 2013!
As per your instructions I checked the windscreen and multi-function camera, as the Automatic High Beam Assist function did not work.
You concluded that the camera was wrong for this car, as well as the windscreen.
This car has been to 2 different Mercedes workshops, where calibration of the camera was tried without success.
I ordered the correct windscreen according to the OE number, as well as the correct camera (mono camera).
I then performed an ADAS Calibration, and the Opus IVS Rap team assisted with me with software update.
Now everything works perfectly! You are a skilled technician Mickey!
Without your help it would’ve taken me ages to discover that the issue with the Automatic High Beam Assist function was due to the wrong windscreen camera being fitted."
