In need to replace the dimmer for the instrument lights on my '82 300SD. Is this a
DIY or is it best left to and expert. I have never had the instrument cluster out so it is /will be a new experience. Any suggestions please.

This cluster is easy to get out if you have the cluster hook pullers. You just pull it out and disconnect the wires.
Good luck

Just don't bend the speedo cable putting the cluster back in!
