1991 300D 115K miles:

I bought my car used, and its been like this since then. At night, when I turn the driving lights on, the dashboard is lighted ok, but there is no light by the gear stick. so I have to feel my way to move the stick to proper position (its an automatic).
Is there supposed to be a light there ? and if yes, do I change it by lifting wood trim ?

Thanks a bunch

Yes: The wood comes off in a manner similiar to that described in the stereo removal article on early w124 cars, not sure about the later one. The shifter light was discussed in the thread Where is the light for this?

There are a number of other threads under shift light, shift bulb, center console trim, etc.

Hope this helps

I took my bulb out, went to the dealer, and got a new one, took all of 5 minutes ot pop it out and put the new one in.

Of course the dealer could not find the map light bulb for the map light, but then again, I should probably look up the part number myself. hehe

Amazing... 15 mins (including the trip to the auto store), and $2.70 later, I have light in my mercedes gear stick !

I am ashamed to say that it had been dark for that long !

Thanks you all !
