ID this instrument cluster pls

Hi all, just home with a Vito 119 in the Middle East - I cannot figure out how the controls work from the steering, for example, to set the clock, or check the oil level, and reset the maintenance.

It runs a V6 3.5L engine, I think the same as the S350, ML350, etc. so I'm hoping someone will recognize the instrument cluster (in the Vito forum, the dash pics I found are different, as are the control instructions).

The instrument cluster is signed Magneti Marelli, and there are two knobs on the left, marked M and R; and two other knobs on the right, marked + and - plus there are the four pairs of controls on the steering wheel.

You'll be happy to know that the Merc dealer here is just as supportive as elsewhere... donkey!

Vito - Online Owner’s Manual in English

Google is our friend. Oddly, it pointed me here: - Mercedes-Benz Discussion Forum > Mercedes-Benz Vans/Trucks/SUV/Others > V-Class > Owners manual for vito.

Welcome to the forum. Please take a moment to complete your profile, including your location and your vehicle's year and model. This information can prove very useful to folk that might offer you help.

Cheers - funnily enough the same link through Google brought me here to benzworld! LOL

Although a lot of the info there matches, the instrument cluster doesn't. Here's what they say they should look like: Online Owner's Manual [In depth | At a glance | Instrument cluster variants]

I got a clue from the MB service chap just now that the ASSYST controls would follow those of an S-Class... but again none look the same online...

Hope to be a regular contributor here on benzworld!
