Hi everyone and I believe this could be my first post.

Have a C240T W202 and the climate control lights have blown. A nuisance at night because can't see the switches, info displayed, etc. Have looked but can't find a way to remove the panel to check the bulbs and I don't want to damage the panel.
Any tips on how to remove the thing?
Thanks for any information

You need the radio removal keys W000589 88 63 00 you put one in each slot at the bottom and the unit slides out,, the back light bulb sits in the top of the cover

The keys cost just over £1 from MB or ICE shop

Welcome to the forum

Couldn't find the "keys" I had somewhere in a corner of the garage but used a feeler gauge instead. Worked perfectly and took out the unit tonight. Will go and get a new bulb from the local MB dealer tomorrow. Thanks again for the tips.
