Removing the instrument panel from your Mercedes-Benz vehicle is different from removing the panel from most other vehicles. Instead of removing several screws and the dash trim to access the instrument panel, you will need a special Mercedes-Benz instrument panel removal tool that can be purchased directly from a Mercedes-Benz dealer. The entire procedure takes only five minutes. Removing the instrument panel is necessary if you wish to change the dash lights or to replace the entire instrument panel.
