I have a 91 300SEL 126 chassis. I need to replace one of the window switches on the center console. How do I get to the switch? I.e. How do I get the wood cover off? Any help would greatly be appreciated.

I think you start in the convenience tray behind the consol. Lift the carpet botton and there should be a screw near the base of the consol. Use a credit card or something like it to get under the black plastic around the shifter area. This has to come off to get the wood off. I would probably remove the ash tray if possible as I believe the front end of the odd slips in place under it. (With the parking barke engaged, and maybe one foot on the brake to be sure move the shifter all the way back to give you room to get the ashtray out). I think the wood should just lift out. Be VERY VERY CAREFUL. The wood can crack or break easily. I think that is all there is to it. I haven't done it myself, but I have read instructions on how to do it. Just to be safe do a search on this forum for other advice.

Did this last night. Take out ashtray and 2 bolts beneath. Lift out carefully and put it to side. Take out console holding seat warmer buttons gently b/c all these have buttons with wires still attached. Put it to the side. Push forward and gently lift the wood console and set it on shift knob. You'll have a wet cloth to clean all the crud. Simple, approximate time about 1 hr- 20 mins to disassemble and reassemble. The other 40 mins will be concentrating on cleaning the crud underneath and having flashbacks of how all this crud got in here.
