All the dash lights are working on my 93 300e 2.8 with the exception of the lights on the automatic gear shifter, makes it difficult to get into Drive in the dark, anyone know how dificult it is to DYI this? Is it a buld replacement or something else?
Thanks

vbayard,

There is one of the small bulbs right in front of the PRNDL indicator.

Remove gear shift surround, console wood; light is at front left of PRNDL indicator - pull out socket, replace bulb, check that it works prior to re-assembly.

you shouldnt have to look to see what you've selected on a mercedes shift gate.

that pattern makes it very easy to select gears.

unless your numb from alot of beers
or very elderly
throw it down one notch your in reverse
then slide it down and left ish
all the way, your in 3rd gear max
slide it up one and your in regular drive

on 1990 300CE "sliding all the way down" would be 2nd gear, 2 notches up => "D"
