Hi everyone. Great info on this site - thank you to all the members.

I have a flickering light on the driver's side AMG door sill. I searched the forum, and it seems I can remove it by prying it up gently (correct me if that's wrong).

Once I've done that - does anyone have experience repairing these? I can try to find one from a wrecker - but I'd prefer to repair it if I can. I realize it depends on what the issue is, but any advice is appreciated before I dig in.

BTW - in case you are wondering why I am planning to try and fix it myself, here is the note from MB. You'll understand immediately:

"The AMG light unfortunately is not covered under your extended warranty. The estimated cost is $691 plus $247.50 install. I would need to ordered from Toronto (2 days). Please reply with your authorization or any questions."

I then asked what the problem was - wiring or bulb or ...? They responded:

"the light onlu comess a whole unit. [sic]"

So - as you can see, I'll be looking into it myself. :)

There is an online retailer, ForMyMercedes.com that has aftermarket lighted stainless steel door sills for the CLS and they say they have them with AMG lettering. They're only available as a set of four, but it is only $209 for the set. I haven't bought these, but I've bought other things from this retailer and they seem to sell good stuff and give good service.
