Euro headlamp parts

I Looking for the last part to complete my refit of a complete Euro lamp system on my 190E W201. I need to find the european headlamp bezel / panel that has the opening for the headlamp adjuster switch. Anyone know where I can get one or what the part number might be? It should be on most all german MB cars that were made to stay in germany or in europe, minus british since the panel for them is switched since they are a right hand drive car. The euro headlamp panel had an opening witha switch mounted in it right next to the knob for the headlamp selection. It fit right in that blank space all our US models have on that panel that holds the headlamp switch.
I sell the euro lamps so I have them instlled and they have the pnumatic adjusters built in to them. THE vacuum lines are run from teh bulkhead vacuum boster to the lamps and I picked up a headlamp adjuster switch from a guy on Ebay from England, but his headlamp swithc bezel is from a right hand drive car so the switch opening is setup on the wrong side of the headlamp switch. If anyone has one I will be happy to buy it, if I can get the part number off anyone that has one in there car and needs to keep it but is willing to take it out to read the part number off it it would be excellent, email me and I can make it worth your time.

ANy one who wants white face custom gauge faces for their MB from 1975 to 1995 email me!
Thanks

Peter,
That is so clost to what I am looking for it hurts. It is the panel and it is the correct orientation,,,BUT apparently as with so many other changes the 1991 and up models are different. That is close but not enough. Thanks so much. The older style switch panel has all the adjuster switch markings on the swicth and the panel only has an opening. I might be able to use the panel from a 1990 or older 300E w124 though. My W201 model probably need teh panel from anything 1990 and older. thanks

PS you have a very nice car there!

does your dial look like this?

if it does you're probably in luck.
remove your switch panel and see if you have an area "scored" that can be cut out [look on the back side of the switch panel]
your dial fits right in there.

if your dial looks like my first picture you'll need the euro switch panel. try parts shop here. they have the one for the w124, they can probably get it for you.
it should not cost more than $20.00 new

FYI, I picked up a panel from Germany from a 1987 16v 190E and it fits my 92 190 just fine. The pictures shown above are from a 300E and won't fit our cars.

Ebennze and 2phast....
Yes , my switch looks like teh second one, not the euro one from the W124. I will indeed look on th back side of my panel fro the score line to see if all I need to do is cut it out. Thanks!
2phast, you posted the correct pic for hte panel I am looking for...now , if mine does not have the score line on the back as Ebennze mentioned, I have to find one like you did from germany.
Do you know where I can get one?
Thanks all!
