You can find the location in the fuse diagram for your car - which is probably wrapped around a tool in the spare tire well.

Hello Mr. Skylaw, Since I have you here, you might able to help me due to we both have the same year and model W220. I can,t seem to find the seat belt latch (the one with the red lease) for the rear center seat, someone guess it may use the same latch together with right rear seat belt. Can to give me you advice on this, much appricated.

Mine is attached to the same anchoring bolt that the right rear passenger seat belt latch.

Two of the rear seat latches fit into notched cutouts at the back of the rear seat bench, and are held in place by the notches. The third latch is loose, but its strap feeds through one notch.

My guess is that at some point, someone removed the rear seat, and covered the latch up. Look, you'll find it.

Toward the front corners of the rear seat there are plastic spring loaded tabs - push up on each tab, and lift the front of the seat, to slide the bench forward.

If you provide the model year of your car, some kind soul may look it up for you.

The search tool is your friend, and I suggest you check here and on BenzWorld when searching. A quick look for "fuse diagram" or "fuse chart" yields several. See http://www.benzworld.org/forums/w220...e-chart-2.html and http://www.benzworld.org/forums/w220...e-diagram.html (the '01 diagram should work for your '00, for the most part). Each lighter has a separate fuse.

Before changing fuses for the rear lighters, check that you haven't used the rear window cutout located in the middle of your driver side window controls. When you use that child safety mechanism to disable the rear windows, it also disables your rear seat lighters.

As a suggestion, it would be helpful if you included your car's model year under your avatar. While your car looks very nice, responses that assume it is an '03 or later (from the tail lights) could get you some very wrong answers, especially when dealing with electronics/telematics questions.

Fuses are located in two large boxes under the hood, one on each side, toward the firewall. A third, smaller box is located just below the leather portion of the bench seat, on the passenger side; pop out the black bezel around the courtesy light, and there it is. All discussed in the owner's manual (if you don't have one, it would be a wise early purchase). You can order the owners manual through the MBUSA site. The fuse diagrams I referred you to identify which fuses are in which box. All of the fuse and relay positions are clearly numbered within the boxes. If you are looking for fuse #74, for example, it will be in only one of the boxes, and it would be in the slot with 74 imprinted beside it.

In the first link I gave you, the diagram labels the fuses in the left hand fuse box (under the hood) box as 16 through 27. The very first note at the top of the writeup says 16 should be 6; those fuses are actually #6 through #27, and fuse 11 (for your front lighter) is in that row.

Wow, 'search' is your friend.

I thought that it would be odd for these to work one day, then not work the next. Apparently, I enabled the child safety lock for the windows to cause this.

Thanks Skylaw.
