You'll also need to change the rear fog lamp so the opposite side works. I just wired the blank up to the existing lamp, so in effect both work. That will get you thro the type approval and MOT.
Are you aware that the speedometer dial is in a complete unit, along with the revcounter etc.
Theres no need to replace the whole headlight assembly as far as i know, just replace the glass. I can check on my sva forms as I imported mine from Germany and went thro the same process.

cheaper than buying the complete cluster unit. Do you know how easy it is to take the glass cover off, then the needles etc.. looks tricky to me.
BTW, where did you find the dials, were there other colours available ??

May be you don't need to take needles off - possible that you can slide it over needles. But i haven't done it on Mercedes.

Maybe you might be able to help me...? I've got a bulb out that should be lighting my instrument panel. Has anyone got any tips on how to replace it? My local garage said that you have to remove the steering wheel and deactivate the airbags before you can remove the instrument cluster to replace the bulb. Can anyone confirm whether this is true?

You have to pull the needles off in order to change the gauge faces. I have done this a few times on my E-Class. I would be interested in different faces for my SLK. Is that ebay seller only in the UK?
