Hi,
I have 1999sl320 and I don't know if yours is the same but - bulb type-
http://cgi.ebay.ie/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?VISuperSize&item=150510635005
Ba9 x 2 (4 Watt I think it says on the old bulb)- for two map lights - centre overhead

Using something plastic, pry down the plastic covering and you will have the bulb in its socket attached to the under-side of the plastic covering.
Push the glass part of the bulb back through socket and replace with the new bulb and clip it back into place.
regards
darragh

Be careful while doing it the ear clips on the plastic clear lens break easily. If your car is cold, use a hair dryer and warm them up before removing, replacing, it might help a little.
