I’ve got an issue with the reverse lights on my old CLK, replaced the bulbs and no Joy, sometimes they come on but more often than not they don’t, I’m assuming it’s most likely the reverse light switch on the gearbox?, so want to try replacing that.
Only thing is I have no idea where it is on them?, I know in some cars it’s underneath the selector in the centre console, some it’s under the car.
Any help would be greatly appreciated.

I’ve not checked the voltage no, all the other rear lights are fine and the reverse lights do work sometimes, they will either work on both sides or not come on at all.

I thought it’s the most likely cause to be honest, just no idea where the switch is on them, when I’ve had to do it on another car before it was below the gear shifter but not sure if that’s the case on the W208.
