    I thought I would give my windscreen a quick wipe this afternoon, but as I reached across to the passenger side, I rested my elbow on the keypad instead of the armrest! One loud click, and it snapped! What a expensive mistake, the cost to replace it would have paid for a full valet :cry:

    Has anyone replaced a keypad in their W221 S-Class or C216 CL-Class? I hope it's not too complicated and that it doesn't just come in one unit, only the bottom plastic is snapped.

    Thank you, any advice appreciated.

    I have the 216 page open on WIS right now and I will check, I think with the right plastic/abs glue it could be fixed so that you would never know

    Yes it comes on its own, but it must be ordered from your VIN for the colour,

    I will find the instructions to fit and you can have them

    Thank you very much for the diagram.

    May I have the fitting instructions when you have time to dig it up please?

    It's such a fortunate coincidence that I have the same car as one of the most resourceful and knowledgeable members here! Cheers.
