CLK320 Instrument Light Bulb Cross-Reference - U.S.

Hello:
I am searching for the/an indenfication number to replace/cross-reference the INSTRUMENT LIGHT BULBS on my 2001 CLK320. I have the panel out and see 2 different bulbs, 2 with a yellow base, 16 with a smaller green base and 2 with a brown base.
I have taken the bulbs to NAPA, and by chance they easily replaced the "slip-in" yellow based bulbs with standard U.S. replacements. They were unable to locate any numbers or I.D. on the smaller, green-based and brown-based bulbs, but said if I had Mercedes Part Numbers, they could get me the bulbs in a couple of hours.
Does anyone know the Mercedes Part Numbers for the CLK (C) class Instrument Bulbs Please??

Much appreciated. Thank you.

Mercedes part numbers can be found by you here: http://epc.startekinfo.com

A basic lesson in German car ownership is that one doesn't shop for parts down to Pep Boys or NAPA. German vs 'merikun cars is apples/oranges.

Thank you VERY much for that suggested part number source. It is much appreciated. Unfortunately, as with everything Mercedes "Factory" or "Dealership", they want money. Specifically, everyone to pay $3,000.00 (three thousand US Dollars a year) a year, (they will accept credit cards) to get a part number, at the site you recommended. that's a bit steep to get the part number for a $1. light bulb, for me.

With regard to NAPA / PEPBOYS...

1) I am unable, now or ever, to pay $20 for a .50 cent bulb, just because it's from a dealer. A basic lesson in getting 2 weeks vacation vs filing Chapter 11.

2) The quality and speed of service and assistance received is superior at NAPA and PEPBOYS and AUTOZONE vs all the Mercedes Dealerships I have ever gone to.

3) The quality of the parts can be very comparable, or often better, if you pick the more expensive of the 2-3 price ranges offered for parts by NAPA, etc.

4) The 'special order' time for parts (2-3 hours, free NAPA, etc) vs a week and, sometimes a shipping charge, at the dealership, is much more inviting.

5) The Dealer representation of 'absolute' requirements, expenses and time is so distorted ($1,800. and a week for a full brake job including new rotors) vs. $215 and 2 hours through NAPA, etc, and DIY, that I am permanently disuaded from getting anywhere near a dealer unless all else fails.

Thank you again for that Parts List Source. It could have saved me a lot of time, effort and expense, but not at a $3000. subscription. Thomas

Kent neglected to inform you that the EPC membership is free to anyone in the U.S.A. Yes they ask you for a credit card but they do not charge you. I don't remember seeing any reference to a $3000/year subscription. BTW I found the proper turn signal bulb easily at my local AutoZone so I hear you.

Thank you Musikmann. I fell off my chair when I saw the fee schedule. It was not actually "$3000", rather $2995. ( Copied, Cut and pasted):

I did not find the free part, so I must have done something incorrectly. I could really use a good parts info source. I will go back after this site, plead yankism and see if they let me in. Again, thanks for letting me know. Thomas
