SOURCE: 1988 Mercedes Benz - 300E , want to replace window switch

Hello, To the rear of the wood grain where the switches are, you should have a small piece of carpet that you just pull up and get it out of the way. You should see 1 screw. Remove the screw and gently pull up on the back of the wood grain. Now you will be able to change the switch.
I hope this helps.

SOURCE: 1998 corvette, center console power outlet has

Open the hatch/door on the center console, pry up that plastic piece just forward of the door with a small screwdriver working from the rear, remove those 2 nuts in the recess, unscrew the door if you wish for easier handling, at the rear of the console opening there are 2 small plastic covers, pop those out and remove the 2 nuts under them, lift the rear of the console and slide it back just enough to unplug the fuel door opening button( there isn't much slack in the wiring for this button so don't pull the console back too far ). I suspect you only needed step one, but this will get the console out for easier access to the power outlet.

Dash light


Is it the lights or the LEDs? If it's the lights, check the fuse first. If the fuse is good, check the dimmer switch. Do the other lights inside dim? If no replace dimmer. If yes, then you can remove the dash cluster from the dash and replace the lights. They are installed in the back of the cluster and are very cheap.
