Dome/Map Light - Weird Issue

My driver-side dome/map light went out. At first I thought it was the bulb so replaced with a brand new one but it's still dark. The passenger works fine. Any ideas? Do they have different fuses and where can I find the fuse box.

Many thanks
New SLK owner here.

Fixed. Turns out the bulb holder is held down by clips and one of the clip was broken so the metal pongs were not making contact to the power rails. I jammed a piece of plastic in there and it's shinning bright now.

Had the same issue with my dome light. The plastics seem to be very thin and fragile and brake easily, especially the ones holding the conductive metal blades . Had to use epoxy glue to keep everything in place and now it's working fine!
