Help with Repairing Light on Sunvisor

When the mirror on the sun visor is opened, generally the lights will come on. Neither of the lights on my visors is currently working. I have a 95 C280. Can someone tell me how to repair it? Is it generally a fuse? Bulb?

Thanks for your assistance.

well first thing make sure the contact is good. second, try new bulbs. thats the easiest. if the bulbs dont due it, possibly the OCP (overhead control panel) is faulty.

Lower the visor and flip open the cover over the mirror, at the same time firmly push the visor in the clip that holds it and rotate it. If the lights works it means that the contacts have oxidized and need to be cleaned. This happens to my SL if the visors are not used for a while. It's worth a try before you start pulling the visors apart.
