W115 1974 240D Rattling Glass in Dash


The two round pieces of glass in my dash are loose and rattling. What is the best way to fix it? Could I just use some silicone caulk? From the back? Any tips would be appreciated.

Thanks, Paul.

It's normal that the glass in front of the dials get looser by time..
Instead of gluing it, you can also use some TINY strips of felt, or other thin soft fabric. Use a needle-sharp instrument and stuff the tiny strips of felt into the small opening between the glass and the plastic frame..
