    What year E Class? Unlikely to find one, the cars use CANBUS to switch the live as required so do not have a true switched live. Take one from cig lighter or similar

    I was looking for same on my (now sold) W203 at the time, but couldn't find one.... not in the driver's side fuse box anyway. Every single socket I tested was permanently live. Good Luck.

    Thanks for the response, 2007 is the year. Sounds like I will have to piggy back from the Cig lighter, hope its not too fiddly to get at.

    If not, perhaps glove box illumination, this should be 12v switched
