Still no Back-up lights?!?!

I have asked this question before and tried what was advised to me with no luck. I start the car (1996/E320) and everything is fine but when i put the car in reverse I get no (white) lightes. All the other lightes work [headlights, fog lights sidemarker lightes, running lightes, brake lights and the "third" brake light in the rear] except for the back-up lights. I have checked the bulbs, cleaned the contact points, and checked the conductivity of the socket and there is no power to that socket. Where do I ckeck the fuse for the back-up lights and is there any where else to check, can anyone help a frustrated new owner of a hand me down MB.

any and all responces are welcomed, please help...

The fuse should be with the rest of them in the fusebox. Even if it looks good, replace the suspect fuse anyway, just to be sure. If that doesn't fix the problem, your next suspect is the backup light switch on the transmission.
