Hello,
Can you tell me how to gain access to the nearside light cluster (reversing light etc) on the tailgate of my E320 Estate W211?

Many thanks

John

Good question - theres no access on the saloon either. Not on the avantgarde anyway. All to do with the HID and LED bulbs meaning that you shouldn't need to access them. I imagine you have to pull the panneling back.

I believe you have to use a heat gun to soften the adhesive around the front of the light cluster. As stated, they have a life of approximately 30 years and therefore are not consumable items.
