Blower switch
« on: July 08, 2022, 17:32:22 »
Hello again,

   I hear that the blower switch knob should light up but I can't see any spot in my switch where a bulb would fit. My car is a 1964 230 SL-- did they have the lighted knob back then? I'm attaching a photo of the only spot where a bulb could conceivably fit. Thank for any insights!

The early versions illuminated and had one more connection at the plug. Later versions did not illuminate.
