    Hi again Jim.

    Just wondering how you were finding your SL?
    Just bought mine on Saturday in Blackpool, love it to bits, but there are a lot of niggly little faults needing taken car of. Heater control bulb not working, courtesy lights not working, a very annoying continueous clickety-click from somewhere behind the dash...the list seems to go on and on. Had the car up on a hoist today to check out an exhaust rattle (which turned out to be the 2 rubber o’rings just forward of the rear axle that had perished) and discovered a fairly substantial oil leak somewhere up high on the o/s bank of the engine. For all the cars faults, I am so proud to have her.

    Really nice car you have there Jim. Never seen one in that colour...very classy.

    Hi Jim,
    Unfortunately you need to remove the centre console cover, which is not bad if you have done it before. If not there is a thread to help on the site or let me know and I will tell you how.
    If you go to post 21 on this thread you will see a pic of the bulb/holder and it's location. That is at the top left near the corner. http://www.benzworld.org/forums/r129-sl-class/1483499-how-replace-bulb-gear-shift-selector.html?highlight=selector+bulb
    The bulb number is also there on a post close by.
    Good luck, any probs get back to me,
    Norman
