Hi first time here great site! Please help I have an 84 300 sd with only 79k! and have a question the hazard lite switch and the ant switch are both pushed into the dash? how can I get to them? also It appears the wood has pulled away from this area at the bottom of this area? will removing this wood trim help me access this area or no? Thanks in advance
pete.

Removing Wood Won't Help...

You can either gently pry the switches out with a small thin blade screwdriver, prying from the top and bottom of each switch alternately, or remove the entire switch panel. I would remove the panel to be safe.

To do it, you need to first remove the radio and the cage the radio sets in. Then, there are two small phillips head screws that hold the panel in that are located underneath the bottom of the panel, above where the radio was. You will then have to open the ashtray, and the panel will scoot down, and can then be removed with the cables still attached to the switches. You can then remove the cables and the fibre optic wires from the switches, which will allow you to remove the switches from the panel, and glue the wood back down to the metal plate that backs it.

Thanks for the reply scott I did not think there was a panel there i can see behind the wood and it blue just like the dash I just a had a new radio installed and before i had it installed there seemed to be nothing under the panel except more " panel" ? the place the switches are mounted seems to be one piece and the wood has two pegs that pop into two holes int the blue panel? the wood did not seperate from the metal backing but poped away from the dash?I have the ashtray out I read another thread that told me ho to get it out.Are these switches ava? the ones here seem to be missing the bottom tab like the rest of them have.thanks agin pete

Further Clarification...

The wood is supposed to be glued to a metal panel that backs it. You can go to the DIY section here and see pictures of a similar, but not the same dash set-up for a W-124 chassis. The W-126 (our cars) are very different, but you can see how the wood is backed by metal...

The switches you need are availaiblre right here at FastLane (link at top of page) for the following prices, under the following part #'s:

Hazard Flasher Switch 000 820 90 10 $17.31

Antenna Switch 002 820 99 10 $14.88

No Need To Quote Everytime...

That's used when several other postings have separated your reply from the posting you want to reply to...

I'd replace the pad. It helps to keep the engine noise to a minimun, and insulates your hood paint from the heat of the engine...

Good luck...
