    Hey all! New to the site and thought I'd start off with a little niggle I have... my car is a '56 plate W203 C Class estate, the problem I'm having is that the interior lights don't come on when I open the drivers door - the lights work on all the other doors including the boot... it's just the drivers door, could this be a faulty switch? If so I'm not sure where to start looking for it?

    Thanks in advance!

    Check the door pin on the driver's B pillar

    Check you are doing it when it is dark.

    Can confirm door pin on B pillar has broken, tried looking up online to see if there's a replacement switch anywhere? Does anyone on here know a good place to look/keywords for the switch?

    Try your dealership parts dept first, the price may be reasonable and at least you will know what to try and beat...
