RE: 180b diesel ponton - dashboard controls
I've got a cabriolet. The knobs are slightly different, but here's my guess:
From left to right (just the portion in the shade):
-A button that appears to have the knob broken off.
There should be a toggle switch on the left, maybe the one you're talking about that controls the left or right side parking light. You could turn one of them on at a time by turning the headlight switch one click to the left of "OFF."
-A switch that rotates (high/low idle?)
-Something that looks like the top to a salt shaker(???)
-A knob (hidden behind the steering wheel) that pulls out. Probably multiple stops. (glow plugs/kill switch??)
Trip meter reset
-Another knob with a rounded top. Pulls out to one stop (I think).
Heater fan switch
-Key/Ignition (although the starter is on a lever below the key.)
-Lighter (can't be seen in the picture.)
Let me know if these match up. If not, I'll give it another try. BTW, the salt shaker thing is the glow plug indicator light.
