How do I replace dash light bulbs?? 97-E320

The light bulb that illuminates the temp indicator on my '97 E320 has burnt out. I understand the instrument cluster must be pulled out to replace it. Are there any step-by-step directions on how to do this anywhere??<p>Thanks...

Like you said by pulling the cluster...

There is enough space behind the steering wheel to pull out the cluster & placing the hooks at each side near the cluster can be done without damaging the dash.<br>Pull the cluster near the woodwork & take care not to damage cluster or dash (by pulling to hard or only at one side).<br>Take care not to turn the ignition key after the connectors of the instrument cluster are removed this will give some trouble with the SRS.<p>

Hi. I seem to have the exact same problem and I'd like to know if it is even wise to try to change the light bulb by myself. I do have access to a mechanic shop where I could rip things apart. But will I need any special tools in order to pull the cluster (or any other components in the front panel) out?

I'd appreciate it if you could drop me a few words at your convenience.

Thanks.
