Where is the switch to dim/brighten the instrument cluster lighting?

I have a CLK320 2003. I'm slow so be specific as to where it is...

I would look in the manual but I absolutely cannot find it. What type of a button is it, one that you press, turn, shift to the left or right or what? And where?

All of a sudden the lights on my dashboard that shows the MPH, radio station, fuel left etc became very dim... thanks

I am googling and I read that it's by the odomoter reset button, however, I have no idea where that is and I cannot find my manual! Is it the black tall skinny thing that sticks out??

Oops, never mind. I found the switch, it's the long black one you turn. I was able to adjust it and now I can see again.

In case you need the manual in the future but cannot find it from the car, you can always use the PDF from MBUSA:
Mercedes-Benz - Home of C, E, S, CLK, CLS, CL, SLK, SL, SLR, R, GLK, M, GL, G Class - Service and Parts - Owners Manuals
