I understand that, on my '84 300sd (126), the gear indicator fiber optic cable connection is at the "octopus" behind the radio. Can anybody illuminate for me what the "octopus" is so I know what I'm looking for behind the radio? Thanks. Be well.

My thinking, is an 8 way connector behind the radio. Octopus having 8 teneacals... Unless they took your car swimming in the ocean latley LOL

Try looking for an 8 wire connector

In remembering previous discussions on this, I think the octopus is the plastic light pipe that has many arms on it, going from a single bulb out to many of the heater control switches to light them. It's simply a clear piece of plastic with multiple arms radiating from a central point.
