I switched head units yesterday as I said on the What did you do to your SLK 'TODAY'? thread and while getting all the paraphernalia out from the old head unit I found a lamp-on-a-wire behind the dash. Can anyone tell me where it might go?



Every control on the console lights up at night so I don't think I've dislodged anything but I'm intrigued. I'm wondering if it's from the ashtray? Does the ashtray light up when open? I can't say I've ever seen that on mine. It looks as if it should clip into something but I can't say I can see a matching orifice in the lower dash.

Any ideas?

Yes - the ashtray has a clear plastic bit that runs from the back to the front that works like a light pipe; the bulb fits into one end of this.
