W111 trunk light.


Whilst chasing down a short circuit in my coupe, I realised that I am missing a trunk light. The wiring is there ( and was causing the short, but that's another story) but there is no light. Or switch, as far as I can tell. Does anyone have a picture of what the light looks like and where it goes, and the same for the switch please? Thanks.

The switches I have seen on this cars look a lot like the ones on the doors only bigger.

They are very prone to failure. I guess water gets into them and drives the electrical system nuts. I do know that I have seen a lot of cars where a PO just removed them.
