The rain/light sensor is located on the windshield within the wiper sweep area, typically near the rear view mirror.
With the gel sheet in place, you will just see a black area with the light sensor showing. When the gel sheet is missing, you may be able to see 6 to 8 sensor arranged in an array near the single light sensor.
Here is the Light/Rain sensor from the E-Class without the gel sheet. The one in my SLK is round in shape. When you buy a replacement, the gel sheet is inplace on the sensor. So you just press it into the holder on the glass. When you remove the sensor, the gel sheet cannot be reused again and I am not sure you can buy the gel sheet separately from MB.
