Thanks Kevin. It looks like I need not ask for your help again as Dr Google has come up with two suggestions how to remove the switch. One video removes the panel on the side, the other just seems to use repeated twisting and turning to pull the switch out.

There is a torx fastener hidden under the parking brake handle.

Most often the cause is an exposed wire on that circuit touching the body of the car. Find that and insulating will generally fix the issue.

Thanks for help. As there is no after-market light switch available, I have to buy a Merc one from Hawaii and the cost + postage is AUS$600 or US$360, and that is mucho dinero. If the flaw perists, I will have to fork that out obviously as draining a battery is also not wise, that reduces the life.

One hopes that a faulty light switch is the problem as paying for a Merc technician to find rubbing wires somewhere must be very costly at AUS$270/hr. Due to the lack of rain here in Western Australia, rain having entered the front driver side SAM does not seem to the issue as told by a Merc mechanic.

Dom, Take it to an Auto Sparky, they'll find it and fix it for maybe $100.00. It is certainly NOT a $600.00 repair.
