Where can I find a replacement front courtesy / reading light?

You should be able to order one through Parts Shop? If not, then your local MB dealer should be able to order the assembly for you.

You just need the bulb, or the entire assembly?

If the assembly is not damaged, but simply doesn't work, you might be able to repair it yourself. I did this a couple of weeks ago in my '83 240D. The front dome light never worked right, and would only occasionally turn on when I opened the door.

I pulled it out and took it apart (which required a little help, just another set of hands) - the contacts were filthy. not really corroded, but just nasty and fouled. I cleaned them up and put some electrical grease on them, and the light works fine.

Good luck.

Thanks for the info. Can use it on the back courtesy light... unfortunately The plastic is broken on the front light so a replacement is needed. Have query about replacement in to Parts Shop now.
