Is there anyway that the dreaded centre console can be waterproofed against spills? Surely there must be a way to cover the valuable electronics with some sort of waterproof membrane or cling wrap. I'm curious to hear the opinions of those who have seen the underside of the console - I haven't.

It could save Merc owners a lot of money in the long run.

Cheers

Nothing much.

The window switches, etc. are all mounted to the underside of the wood.

The shifter box is a separate component and is usually the problem.

On the newer slap-shift 5-speeds, there's a new, improved model more resistant to liquid ingress. Don't know about earlier ones.
Is there a way of wrapping the shifter box with a thin membrane of sorts?

Cheers
