Question '90 300E - Window Switches

Can anyone tell me if I need to remove the center console to install new window switches? I'm afraid of damaging the wood overlay.

Thanks

If your car is similar to mine, and I think it is, you will have to remove the wood to change the switches. Removing the wood is quite easy, there's a good thread for it here:

Zeus,

Thanks for the link with the detailed instructions. I think I can manage the switch cleaning and repair/replacement from here. Thanks again, Jim
