    Got to be a stupid question. Where is the switch to activate the light on the glove box of a cl203 coupe. Thanks.

    I have just been out to my C class W205 and the light comes on when the ignition is on and the glovebox is opened.

    As for where the switch is I have no idea.

    Looks like it is part of the lamp assembly

    it seems it only works when the headlights are turned on, it seems to stay on until the headlights are switched off. seems weird there is no plunger or something to operate the light in the glove box. thanks for all replies.
