1994 E320 "overhead dome light"

How do I change the main light bulb
in the overhead dome
light. The small bulb on the right side lights
up but the bulb in the
left side appears to be burned out. I don't see
anywhere to pry it open.
Do I somehow pop out the entire assembly?

Thanks in advance

The assembly should pop out.

Nothing really to it. I'm not sure which side to pop it out on. The right side has metal clips, the left side has plastic arms that hold it into the headliner.

I would think you should pop it out from the right side. Mine I can just kind of grab it and pull and it comes out. And I can grab mine from either side, but the right side is usually easiest.

I had mine out today. The door behind the bulb has a little tab that can get broken easily. you only have to slightly move the flap release and pull up to get it open.

The bulb is the same one that the glove box uses. I took the one from my glove box until I can pick up a new one at the local parts store.

1992 300CE, but I believe theya re the same part.

Mine houses the sunroof switch, maplight, seatbelt indicator, and interior dome light.

I can pull mine out formt he right side first which has the metal spring clips holding it in place.
