    Yesterday eve the illumination disappeared from my instrument cluster. Suddenly those speedy cameras look ominous.
    Has anyone managed to replace the bulbs in these or is there a simple fix. I dont really want to replace the whole unit! cost and time prohibitive..seems a shame when all the main info appears on the dash just no lighting.
    Is there a way to remove the cluster with a thin knife or something?
    My chasis number is not on recall and the cluster was replaced after failure by Mercedes in 2005.....Cl500 Y reg.......WDB215375A014550

    There are couple of bulbs required. But I'd be surprised if they all blew at the same time.

    Do a search for cluster removal...easy.
