W463 center console
Someone in the past has mixed up the electrical connections on the ABS disable button and the rear wiper wasp on my G463, which is amusing (ABS can only be disabled if you press and hold the wiper button!)
So I need to take out the buttons and swap the connections.
I assume I need to prise off the wood trim and then all will become obvious for how to remove the switches? I want to be careful not to destroy the trim so some advice on where to lever it would be appreciated.
Remove steering wheel, 27mm socket, then two screws hold the horizontal piece of wood, gently ( very ) pull on the wood as held by inserts, do it gradually to avoid snapping expensive bit of trim, then a few screws hold the panel, you may need to remove the radio and plastic tray next to it to remove the two nuts so you can get more give . Problem is diff lock warning lights have very little slack in them, so good luck
Disconnect the battery from the negative terminal before removing the steering wheel air bag pad!
Suggest to use a memory saver whilst the battery is disconnected. You could use a battery pack with a fault code reader plug fitting attached to the diagnostic plug and that plugged into the terminal.
It has been a long time since I dived behind the said console but I would imagine the switch fittings were fool proof; you should not be ale to fit them in the wrong place?
