E350 Window switch buttons

Anyone know how to replace/pop off the driver's side window buttons? I've already purchased replacement buttons since all 4 are already peeling and I hate the way it looks.

Thanks for the PDF. I actually need to just change the window switch buttons, not the whole panel. Is there a way to do that? If not, how do I pop out the buttons once the panel is out?

No hands on but I would imagine you need to disassemble switch panel here is the underside view.

If you do tear it down, posting pictures of your findings would be hugely appreciated, I'm sure. It's a common problem that frustrates a lot of people. I'm exactly the type that would tear it down to replace the buttons.

Where did you source replacements, if you don't mind me asking?

If you do not have the clip remover it costs between $200 to $350. There has to be a cheaper way to remove window switch.

So I figured out to how to pry off the buttons after watching a YouTube video for a c-class. If you flick the switch forward as if to open a window youíll see a tiny slit behind the button. Stick a small flathead screwdriver in there and push down on the screwdriver to pop off the button. Works like a charm, donít be afraid (like I was, lol).

No my only problem left is that the buttons I purchased off an Amazon seller didnít fit even though the product description says it would fit a W212. The button was slightly longer and didnít seem to engage the Like the OEM button so I returned it. I know the button didnít fit for a fact because the OEM button snapped right back into place.

Im still trying trying to source a cheap OEM version online. I need all four buttons too!

it was more scary, than hard. Itís stubborn at first so you have to press down enough to pop up the button, but I promise you it works. It did it about 3 times just to make sure it wasnít a fluke and would
pop back in place. If anyone has a source for new or used buttons let me know.
